Help us raise awareness about Multiple Sclerosis. We’ve created a Behind the Scenes NYC Team to participate in theWalk MS this year! So, come support with us!
We’ve created a Behind the Scenes NYC Team to participate in this year’s Walk MS, to support the research and extinction of Multiple Sclerosis (a.k.a. MS)!
Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, unpredictable disease of the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves.
But, today there are multiple medications and people can actually have totally normal and healthy lives, even though they’ve been diagnosed with MS.
That is to say that the MSWalk will happen in New York City on April 17th. And, we’re calling family, friends, and new friends to participate with us!
Plus, donate ANY amount you wish – starting at $1, and come meet us on the 17th!
In 2016 the Walk MS: New York City participants raised $1,301,665.93 in 2016 to fund critical services, groundbreaking research and move us closer to a world free of MS.
In addition, 4,687 people made Walk MS: New York City a success in 2016.
Date: April 17th, 2016
Check in time: 9:00am
Walk start time: 10:15am
Location: Pier 26, NYC
Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, unpredictable disease of the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. It is thought to be an immune-mediated disorder, in which the immune system incorrectly attacks healthy tissue in the CNS.
So, when you make a donation, you are changing the world for people affected by MS. Furthermore, the symptoms of MS 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 leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Moreover, most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease.
In addition, MS affects more than 2.3 million worldwide, and there is not yet a cure. Every dollar raised matters to those affected by MS.
Thank you for your support!
