I want to hear you ROAR!
Our team name is Walk On The Wild Side and we like to get WILD. Dressing up in animal-themed clothing or costume is encouraged! It will make our team stand out from the crowd and it is FUN!!! Use costume ears, tails, masks, make-up, or even just a shirt that has an animal design on it. Get creative and show up with the pride. :)
Welcome to the team,
Most of my returning members already know, but we might have some newcomers, I have led a team every year since my mom was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2006. You could say I am a walking expert now. Please, feel free to ask me any questions in regards to MS, the MS walk event, or walking in general, and I will be happy to answer.
What is MS?
Multiple sclerosis (MS) affects the brain and spinal cord, resulting in loss of muscle control, vision, balance, and sensation (such as numbness). With MS, the nerves of the brain and spinal cord are damaged by one's own immune system. Multiple sclerosis affects millions of people, including our co-workers, friends, families and loved ones.
What can you do to help?
You can join the team and help raise money towards our team goal of $1,000. However, I understand that not everyone will be able to physically be there on Saturday, April 18th. The good news is that you CAN still join the team as a virtual walker and help from anywhere in the world. Every little bit helps, no donation is too small! If you are unable to donate at this time, I completely understand and I would not want to place you in a bad financial situation, but you CAN share the team info so that others can see this opportunity. Thank you so very much, you have no idea how much it means to me!
Why I Participate:
Every year I participate in the MS Walk, I proudly exclaim that I walk for those who cannot.
Multiple sclerosis affects millions of people, including our
co-workers, friends, families and loved ones. I have seen the treachery that MS can do, but I have also seen what happens when we walk. That's why I proudly walk with my friends at Walk MS. Walk MS is where we connect and each step we take brings us closer to a world free of MS.
I am asking you to support me in Walk MS because this cause is meaningful to me. Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling, disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Millions of people are affected by MS and the challenges of living with its unpredictable symptoms, which 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.
Please support me!
Your gift helps support cutting-edge research and programs and services for everyone impacted by MS. Ending MS means no one will receive an MS diagnosis again. Every step matters. Every dollar counts. Every person makes a difference.
We've formed a team for Walk MS— an event that brings together a community of passionate people to connect and raise funds to change the world for everyone affected by multiple sclerosis.
MS is an unpredictable and often disabling disease. Our team is uniting to end MS forever, and we invite you to donate or join our team!
We've set an ambitious goal because with your support, we can get there. The money we raise will help drive groundbreaking research, provide life-changing programs and guarantee a supportive community for those who need it most.
Help us reach our goal.
