Thank you to everyone who came out on Saturday, April 20th!!! We had a great walk this year!
Our bodies are in constant motion — moving information from the brain to the body. But, multiple sclerosis (MS) stops people from moving by attacking the myelin that protects normal nerve tissue. This damage keeps people from living smoothly, both inside and out. Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with MS, an unpredictable and often disabling disease.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society believes that moving is not just something you can or can’t do but rather is who you are. That is why they host events like Walk MS — to raise funds for critical research, as well as comprehensive programs and services for people with MS — moving us closer to a world free of MS.
Walk MS: Springfield was started up in 2011 by a group of Clark County residents with help from the local National MS Society Chapter. Last years’s walk raised over $20,000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society which goes to client and program services, research, management, fundrasing and to help raise awareness about MS. Join in our area’s efforts this year!
