WALK MS MADISON 2014

May 4, 0014 Check-in begins at 9; the walk begins at 10.

Warner Park, 1625 Northport Drive, Madison
Walk MS: Madison to benefit those living with multiple sclerosis
PARTICIPATION/ VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION: Visit walkMSwisconsin.org, call (855) 372-1331 or email info.wisMS@nmss.org
WHY: Proceeds raised will benefit the National MS Society-Wisconsin Chapter to fund MS-related research, programs and services for those living with multiple sclerosis, including nearly 1,000 people in Dane County.

About Walk MS
In less than two decades, multiple sclerosis has gone from an untreatable disease to one with 13 therapies for its most common forms; at least 15 more are in the pipeline. That’s in large part due to support of those who fundraise through events like Walk MS, a volunteer-driven event supported by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Walk MS is scheduled to take place in 20 communities throughout Wisconsin in 2014, with each location featuring accessible routes, rest stops, first aid and more. More than $1.3 million was raised through Walk MS events in Wisconsin last year.

About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms 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. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide. More than 10,000 children, women and men have been diagnosed in Wisconsin, believed to be one of the higher prevalence rates in the nation.

About the National Multiple Sclerosis Society
The National MS Society addresses the challenges of each person affected by MS. To fulfill this mission, the Society funds cutting-edge research, drives change through advocacy, facilitates professional education, collaborates with MS organizations around the world, and provides programs and services designed to help people with MS and their families move forward with their lives. Through the collective efforts of each person in the MS movement, the Society invested over $48 million in 2013 to fund 380 research projects around the world while providing programs and services that assisted more than one million people. The Society is dedicated to achieving a world free of MS. Join the movement at www.wisMS.org or by calling 262-369-4400 or 800-242-3358.

Early and ongoing treatment with an FDA-approved therapy can make a difference for people with multiple sclerosis. Learn about your options by talking to your health care professional and contacting the National MS Society at nationalMSsociety.org or 1-800-344-4867 (1-800-FIGHT-MS).
