Walkers “Join the Movement®” to Create a World Free of MS

The National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society, Southern California & Nevada Chapter will hold their annual Walk MS for Southwest Riverside County on April 28th at Town Square Park, Murrieta.


More than 700 walkers are expected to come out and help raise the goal of $54,000. Funds raised will support direct services for the more than 21,000 people with MS and their families in Southern California and research to find a cure for this chronic disease of the central nervous system.


Walk MS is the rallying point of the MS movement, creating a community of shared commitment determined to end MS. Walk MS is a day that allows people to come together and celebrate being part of a movement by and for the 400,000 Americans diagnosed with MS. The typical route extends between one and five miles.


Sponsors, in kind donations (breakfast foods, fruit, lunches), volunteers and walkers (individual

or teams are needed.


About Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis interrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body and stops people from moving. Every hour in the United States, someone is diagnosed with MS — an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to an MS-free world. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with more than twice as many women as men affected by the disease. More than 400,000 people in the United States and 2.5 million worldwide live with MS.
