The 2009 MS Walk

As many of you know, my mother was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1992. Since that time, she has gone from being able to walk, to walking with the help of a walker, to being confined to a wheelchair.

This Saturday, April 4, my father and I will participate in the MS Walk, which is hosted annually by the National MS Society. This will be our 15th year to participate and in that time, we have raised approximately $25,000.

I am asking for your help this year in reaching our goal of $5,000. All donations are tax deductible within IRS rules, and all the money raised goes directly to MS research. The National MS Society spends more money on MS research than any other MS organization in the world. Since its foundation in 1946, the Society has allocated more than $500 million to MS research.

The Alabama chapter of the National MS Society is dedicated to serving nearly 4,000 people in Alabama with MS. Funds raised though campaigns like the MS Walk allow the chapter to continue providing innovative and necessary support to people affected by multiple sclerosis.

Any amount you can contribute is greatly appreciated, and I’ve made it easy for you – all you have to do is click the donate button below and make your donation through PayPal.

Thanks in advance for your help in this effort.
