MS Awareness Week -- Last Day

On this the last day of MS Awareness Week, Dr. Lawrence Steinman presented the last of five webcasts to increase awareness. Did you miss a webcast? Click here.

MSAwareness Week may be ending today, but that's not the end of the story. We can continue toward wiping out MS and helping MSers until then.

Upcoming events:
  • The MS Walk is right around the corner. Last year's event brought us one step closer to a cure by raising almost $50 million.
  • The MS Bike Tour, now on its 27th anniversary, raised about $60 million to fight MS. This is the largest organized bicycle event in the U.S.
  • The MS Challenge Walk is a 2- or 3-day event that raised $7 million last year.
  • Champions Against MS connects MSers with event participants.

There are many ways to raise awareness throughout the year. Keep in touch with your local chapter and stay involved.
