“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.”
Congrats to Judy and all of our PatientsLikeMeInMotion-sponsored teams for your efforts. For more PatientsLikeMeInMotion team photos, check out our growing Flickr collection.

As we get deeper into summer, there are disease-related walk/run events happening almost every weekend. What they all share is an opportunity for patients, friends and family to come together in solidarity and raise money for research and patient services.
For inspiration, please meet multiple sclerosis (MS) patient barneyhouse and her “Walking Warriors,” who took part in a recent Walk MS event in Ormond Springs, Florida. By signing up for our PatientsLikeMeInMotion program, the team was able to score bright blue PatientsLikeMe t-shirts and a monetary donation towards their fundraising goal. “My sister, who is six years older, has had MS for over 30 years,” writes barneyhouse. “So although this is new for me, it is not new to me.”
Congrats to the Walking Warriors team as well as all of our PatientsLikeMeInMotion-sponsored groups for your efforts to raise funds and awareness for your condition. We’re honored to support you in your journey. For more PatientsLikeMeInMotion team photos, check out our growing Flickr collection.
