Challenge Walk MS: Chesapeake Challenge 2018

Cabi Girls Rock

Our goal—a world free of MS.

Six years ago, just a few weeks before the 2013 Chesapeake Challenge 30 Mile MS Walk, three of my dear friends and I formed the team Cabi Girls Rock. This awesome fundraising walk is changing the lives of people affected by MS, like me,  and helping fuel progress toward a world free of MS. We’d love your support as we prepare for this incredible experience. If you want to do more than make a donation, join our team!

Here is one of the reasons we walk. I have Multiple Sclerosis. It took a while for me to get used to saying that without feeling scared. I first started showing symptoms of MS in 1998. My testing showed nerve problems but the doctors weren’t sure it was MS. So I just got used to getting on my own nerves :)

In 2007, I had a flare up but I didn’t know I had MS. I thought I had a pinched nerve that prohibited me from lifting my foot off the ground. In 2011, I started having many different symptoms that I had never felt before. Tingling, numbness, and a feeling of a rubber band around my torso, were just some of the sensations I was experiencing. September 2011, after several months of testing, I was diagnosed with MS. I was very scared and unsure of my future.


On Oct 27th and 28th, we’ll go the distance and walk 30 miles around beautiful Easton, Maryland for MS. It will take lots of advance training, preparation and ongoing commitment from hundreds of volunteers and hundreds of walkers all over the country. What will really put power in our stride is your support and our commitment to those impacted by this disease. Every mile we walk brings us closer to our goal—a world free of MS.

Please support our team, Cabi Girls Rock, today.

We’ve set an ambitious goal of $30,000.   We know that with support from people like you we can get there. The money raised will help fund amazing progress in MS research, as well as programs and services that ensure people affected by MS, like myslef, can live their best lives.

xoxo, Lisa Holt and team Cabi Girls Rock  #FlockMS #CabiGirlsFlock

About MS

When you make a donation, you are changing the world for people affected by MS. 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. 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. 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.
