I am walking in the MS Walk in Manhattan

As most of you know, because I've mentioned it before, my Mother suffers from Multiple Sclerosis. She was diagnosed when I was a kid, and is now almost completely immobilized by the disease.

On April 19, 2009, I will join 6,000 participants for the 21st Annual Walk MS event in Manhattan. I will walk either 3 or 6 miles (I havn't decided which yet) to raise money for the National MS Society.

This year’s goal is to raise 2.7 million dollars and I want to do my part to reach that goal. So I'm reaching out to all my readers here, and anyone they know to help out in this.

To make a donation, you can simply visit my personal page at the Walk MS site. Any donation helps.

The National MS Society believes that moving is not just something you can or can’t do but, rather, is who you are. As people dedicated to fitness, this is something we can all understand. Most of us have been to the place where movement is difficult, some of us are still there, using what we can do to get our movement back. MS steals a persons ability to move.

Walk MS raises funds for critical research, as well as comprehensive programs and services for people with MS, moving closer toward a world free of MS. When you donate, you become a part of the powerful movement that is doing something about MS Now.

Many thanks in advance for your generous support.

Warmest regards,

Thats awesome! I did an MS Walk a few years ago because my friend's mom had it. I'm glad you will be doing it and getting in some exercise. Very good. :)
