MS Awareness Week! Move It!

March 8th through the 14th is MS Awareness Week! Help spread the word of trying to make the world MS free.

Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by the disease.

A dedicated site for the Move It campaign can be found here. To help spread the word, this website also features downloads and images to help get the message across. It also features events to help promote the fight of MS like Walk MS , Bike MS and volunteer offers.
