BENEFITING: NATIONAL MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS SOCIETY
EVENT DATE: May 24, 2014
I'm running the Spring Lake 5 year to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, New Jersey Metro Chapter. I chose to run for MS because its cause is still unknown and there is no cure. By supporting me in running, you will help raise MS awareness and research efforts for a cure. Here is more information on the race: http://www.springlake5.org/
The National MS Society is part of a nationwide 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization aimed at a vision of a world free of MS. The New Jersey Metro Chapter services nearly 10,000 people living with MS and their families over 14 New Jersey counties. The money raised from events such as the Spring Lake 5 is what keeps hope alive. We are able to fund promising research aimed at finding a cause and cure for MS in adults and children, and also pays for over 100 services and programs for MS clients and their families in northern and central New Jersey. These programs include wellness programs, financial assistance, a scholarship fund, and self-help support groups. Our chapter’s tax ID number is 226080521.
