About MS Leaders Challenge

The MS Leaders Challenge is a fundraising competition among aspiring and seasoned leaders to raise funds for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, give back to a great cause, and change the world for everyone affected by MS.

This year marks the 24th anniversary of the National MS Society Gateway Area Chapter's MS Leaders Challenge.  Thanks to the leadership of this group and many leaders before you, we have raised more than $3 million dollars to help drive research breakthroughs that continue to fuel the treatments and solutions that will stop the disease in its tracks, restore what has been lost, and end MS forever.
