Walk MS: Seattle and 5K Run 2018
April 8, 2018 @ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Seattle Jaycees have signed up for Walk MS 2018 — an event that brings together a community of passionate people to connect and raise funds to change the world for everyone affected by multiple sclerosis. We welcome your generous support as we prepare for our walk.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. MS is different for everyone, and that makes it all the more challenging to solve. The first Walk MS event was in 1988, and since then more than $1 billion has been raised for research and programs to improve the lives of people living with MS. Today, there are treatments where there weren’t any before, and the dream of ending MS is becoming a reality. But there is still so much to do.
That’s why we are walking. We have set an ambitious goal because we know with support from people like you, we will have a great chance at reaching it. The money raised will drive groundbreaking research, provide life-changing programs and guarantee a supportive community for those who need it most. This cause is important to us, so we hope you will do your part to help end MS forever.
We have put together a team of walkers and would love for you to join us. Details of the walk are below. Questions? Want to join our team? Email Chapter President, Amanda Griffith at President@seattlejaycees.org
