Alaska Neurology Center formed a team for Walk MS because we want to experience a great event and help the National MS Society fund research, advocate for change, and help people with MS live their best lives. We believe in this cause.
Each year AKNC treats hundreds of MS patients that we have grown to know and love. We formed this team because we like showing up in numbers to show our full support for our patients.
Walk MS is a day that brings friends, families, and coworkers together to embrace an important cause. Join us and participate together to make a powerful statement and to keep moving toward a cure. Each step we take brings us closer to a world free of MS.
Millions of people are affected by MS and the challenges of living with its unpredictable symptoms. Multiple sclerosis interrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body and it stops people from moving. An estimated 2.3 million people worldwide live with MS, a disease of the central nervous system. Symptoms 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 moving us closer to a world free of MS.
