BENEFITING: National Multiple Sclerosis Society
HOURS PLEDGED: 2
Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with MS, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.
Why I Walk
I've registered for Walk MS because I want to do something for the people who have been diagnosed. Today, there is no cure for multiple sclerosis, and with diagnosis occurring most frequently between the ages of 20 and 50, many individuals face a lifetime filled with unpredictability. Join me in creating a world free of MS.
I have friends who have been affected by this disease and I think that any effort to bring awareness and get people out in the community is a great thing!
