We're cycling towardtaking a step towardsfundraising to create a world free of MS.


Thanks for visiting our Walk MS: South Bend 2019 team page!

We formed Team Deme in 2014 to recognize Demetria Smith's fight against MS.  Demetria was diagonised with primary progressive MS in 2006 and started dealing with life altering physical disabilities by 2010.  Yet, Demetria has continued to fight MS everyday, providing a source of inspiration for us all.  With the support of family and friends, she has overcome many obstacles throughtout her life.  Her greatest accomplishment is becoming the proud and happy mother of her four-year old son Jude.  The love, energy, and enthusiasm that Jude displays everyday is a reflection of Demetria's spirit.

The money we raise during Walk MS will help the National MS Society fund research, advocate for change, and improve the lives of people living with MS.  Your donations help support cutting-edge research and programs for everyone impacted by MS - programs that have helped Demetria and Brian obtain home care, medication, and medical equipment.  It makes a big difference in many lives.

Over the years, Team Deme has raised almost $10,000 for the National MS Society.  We hope to be among the top fundraising teams in South Bend again and make a large presence during Walk MS: South Bend 2019.  Please join us in our efforts!
