Help make a difference by taking part in the M.S. walk

Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system. You are unable to connect. It often strikes without warning — in prime of life.

M.S. symptoms (blurred vison, double vison, loss of balance, poor coordination, slurred speech, tremors, numbness, extreme fatigue, problems with memory and concentration, paralysis,and blindness and more).

These problems may be permanent or may come and go. Every day is a challenge to someone living with M.S. You wake up and ask yourself, “Will I be able to walk or see today?”

More than 2.1 million people are affected by M.S. worldwide. People can be diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, although it has been diagnosed as young as 2 and old as 75 or more has developed it.

M.S. is a disease that is difficult to diagnose. People diagnosed with M.S. have to struggle to live as productively as they desire and are faced with many limations when living with M.S.

Come join us in the annual M.S. walk to help people living with this disease to find hope. It could be you, family or friends who have this disease. Tri-State area, come together to walk this M.S. walk which will help with research. Gather a team, get sponsors, come walk 5k (approximately 3 miles) in Cumberland at the Western Maryland Railway Station.

Help us by walking to make funds for better treatment for M.S. M.S. walk will be April 27.

Registration is 9 a.m. and the walk is at 10 a.m. M.S. color is orange. For more information about this walk and donating, contact,www.walkmsmaryland.org or call 443-641-1200.
