MS Awareness Week
Progress on MS can’t wait. Move it… and move us closer to a world free of MS during MS Awareness Week, March 2-8.
Every hour someone is diagnosed with MS, a chronic disease of the central nervous system for which there is no cure. Multiple sclerosis interrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body and stops people from moving. Many have trouble imagining what their lives would be without the ability to move, but I know the effects of MS; I have experienced the devastation first hand.
MS Awareness Week takes place March 2-8. I encourage people to join the movement to end MS and help people with MS move their lives forward.
It’s easy to get involved. It only takes a few minutes to make a difference in the lives of the millions of people worldwide who live with this disease.
Some simple things you can do:
• Visit nationalMSsociety.org to learn more about MS.
• Tell 10 people that MS Awareness Week is March 2-8 and ask them to tell 10 people they know.
• Sponsor a walker or cyclist in a Walk MS or Bike MS event, or participate yourself!
Progress on MS can’t wait. Move It during MS Awareness Week and move us closer to a world free of MS.
