Please help me support my sister as she walks for Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is kicking off our annual Walk MS on. I am planning to be a part of that event and I’m asking you to join me in the movement to create a world free of MS by making a contribution. Your support will help me meet my personal fundraising goal of (insert fundraising goal) and will help the Mid-Atlantic Chapter continue to offer programs and services to the more than 7,000 individuals in the chapter who live with MS.
Walk MS raises money for MS research projects and client programs (40% for important national research and programs and 60% that stays in the local chapter for programs that assist those individuals in this region living with the MS). The funds also help to raise awareness about the disease and to educate the public about the FDA-approved drugs now available which may delay or reduce future disability in many people with MS. Multiple sclerosis (MS) usually strikes adults in the prime of life between the ages of 20 and 50. MS is a chronic disease of the central nervous system affecting the brain and spinal cord, causing blindness, paralysis, and loss of movement. The symptoms are vast and unpredictable, bringing uncertainty to those living with the disease and the future.
You and I are essential in this movement to create a world free of MS as there are only 400,000 in the United States who have MS; not enough to cure the disease. Rather, we need people like you to join the movement…people who can give their time, treasure and talent.
Sponsoring me and contributing to the National MS Society is what YOU CAN DO to help move us even closer to a cure. Any amount, no matter how small it may seem, is helping to get us closer to the day when no one has to hear the words, “you have MS.”
Help me by making a donation – large or small – to bring an end to MS. Or, why not join me on the day of the event? Become a participant and side by side, as teammates, we can work together to raise the funds to make a difference.
