Making Strides

Our goal—a world free of MS.

The Blanchard and Calhoun family is one made up of love and support, as I have seen time and time again. Come out on March 24th at Lake Olmstead, wear your red B&C t-shirt (or just wear red if you don't have a B&C shirt), donate, and do some fundraising if you can. I can't wait to see Blanchard and Calhoun show the Walk MS organization how it's really done!  To the left, click to "Join our Team" to walk with us and click "Donate to our Team" to donate. Share our team page to help meet our team goal and combat MS.  You can also share the page to invite others to join us for this fun event!

My mother was diagnosed with MS in 2005, and I watched as a vibrant, active woman was gradually slowed and weakened.  While she still does more than anyone would've expected, her life has become more of a struggle.  Her balance, her strength, and her energy are greatly affected; these changes often prevent her from enjoying the retirement she had planned.

I was diagnosed in 2012.  I thought I had a sinus infection, but went blind in my right eye. Temporary loss of sight is often a first symptom of MS for people.  I am fortunate that my disease thus far has not progressed as rapidly as it does for many.  I experience fatigue and occasional loss of balance or physical stamina, but I am still strong and staying in motion.

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.

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.

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.
