Our Mission
The mission of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society
is to end the devastating effects of multiple sclerosis.

Studies show that early and ongoing treatment with an FDA-approved therapy can reduce future disease activity and improve quality of life for many people with multiple sclerosis. Talk to your health care professional &
contact the National MS Society at nationalmssociety.org or 1-800-344-4867 to learn about ways to help manage multiple sclerosis and
about current research that may one day reveal a cure. Follow these links to learn about symptom management and current research.

The impact of multiple sclerosis is different on each person and family living with the disease. Thanks to your support, the Society is here to addresses the many challenges of MS.

Challenge Walk MS

The Mid America Chapter cannot thank our past participants, volunteers, sponsors and donors enough for your support of Challenge Walk MS. In seven years, more than $1 million was raised to create a world free of MS. We hope you'll continue our journey to a cure by joining Walk MS 2009 in 19 locations across our Chapter.

While we are no longer hosting the Challenge Walk in this area, you can choose among 10 great events across the country. Visit walkms.org and click the Challenge Walk Map tab to learn more.
