On April 6th join thousands as they walk and play at UCI in support of a cure for multiple sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is a debilitating condition that stops people from moving. Walk MS is the rallying point of the MS movement, creating a community of shared commitment determined to end multiple sclerosis. Walk MS is a day that allows people to come together and celebrate being part of a movement by and for the 2.3 million people in the world diagnosed with MS.

Upwards of 4,000 walkers and hundreds of supporting volunteers from all over Southern California will participate in Walk MS on Saturday, April 6th. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society will host this fun, family-friendly walk at the University of California, Irvine. Friends, family, and co-workers will gather together in orange with team signs, costumes and enthusiasm to walk 3 miles through the UC Irvine campus. There will be live music, face painting, food and good times!

NMSS_2MS stops people from moving. The National MS Society exists to make sure it doesn’t. The Society addresses the challenges of each person affected by MS by funding cutting-edge research, driving change through advocacy, facilitating professional education, collaborating with MS organizations around the world, and providing programs and services designed to help people with MS and their families move their lives forward.

Money raised through the Walk MS event supports local programs and services for people affected by MS in our local community, as well as to help fund cutting-edge MS research. Twenty years ago, there were no drugs to help someone living with MS. Today, there are nearly one dozen, including new oral medications to help slow disease progression.
