Our goal—a world free of MS.
Welcome to Arizona Sun - Team Ellen. Arizona Sun - Team Ellen was started in 2003 by Ellen Wallace who was diagnosed with MS in 2002. She formed a team for Walk MS—a charity walk that is changing the lives of people with MS and helping fuel progress toward a world free of MS. We'd love your generous support as we prepare for this incredible experience.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. MS is different for everyone, and that makes it all the more challenging to solve. The first Walk MS event was in 1988, and since then more than $920 million has been raised for research and programs to improve the lives of people living with MS. Today, there are treatments where there weren't any before, and the dream of ending MS is becoming a reality. But there is still so much to do.
That's why we're walking. We've set an ambitious goal because we know with support from people like you, we will have a great chance at reaching it. The money raised will drive groundbreaking research, provide life-changing programs and guarantee a supportive community for those who need it most. This cause is really important to us, so we hope you can do your part to help end MS forever.
Will you help us reach our goal by donating what you can?
Ellen passed away on June 15, 2015. We proudly continue to walk and support the National MS Society because this team is one of the many legacies that she leaves behind. We welcome you to our team, and thank you for being a part of Ellen's legacy.
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.

We’d love to have you. Come walk with us and share in an experience that will change lives—including your own.
