Today’s Photo: Enthusiasm and Hope at Walk MS

Posted December 14th, 2012 by

“There is still no cure, but at least now, thanks to these fundraising events, there are advancements in patient care, and there is hope.”
Multiple sclerosis (MS) patient Judy

It may be winter now, but plans for next year’s disease-related fundraising events are underway.  The question is:  will you be taking part?

For inspiration, see Judy and Jim below in their bright blue PatientsLikeMeMe t-shirts before the start of Walk MS in Cranford, NJ, on April 15, 2012.  “When I was first diagnosed over 20 years ago, there were no therapies for MS patients and knowledge was limited,” says Judy.  “We’re grateful to PatientsLikeMe for their continued support for events that raise awareness and funds for MS research.”  She adds that the Cranford Walk MS event had “a large and enthusiastic turnout.”

The weather is warming up, and calendars are filling up.  That means it’s time to starting thinking about spring walk/run events for your health condition!

For inspiration, please meet multiple sclerosis patient NewLife (center), who led a PatientsLikeMeInMotion-sponsored team at Walk MS in St. Louis, Missouri.  Including a monetary donation from PatientsLikeMe, NewLife and her team raised $2,000 for MS research.  The group also shared a delightful day together.  NewLife says, “I was very touched by the support of my friends walking with me.  It truly meant a lot.”
