Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a debilitating disease that affects over 20,000 people across northern Illinois alone. MS stops people from moving, and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society exists to make sure it doesn’t. The Rockford MS Committee is looking to spread awareness of this disease any way we can. We will be hosting WALK MS — ROCKFORD at Klehm Arboretum on Sunday, May 5, 2013. We are currently looking for donations, volunteers and participants for the walk.
In light of Walk MS, along with spreading recognition of Multiple Sclerosis, the Rockford Committee will also be hosting a MS Awareness IceHogs game on March 29. The game begins at 7:05 p.m. We are selling tickets for $15 apiece, and $5 of every ticket goes directly to the National MS Society to aid research programs and to assist those battling this disease. If you are looking to attend this game, please remember to wear ORANGE to support this remarkable cause! We need your support to achieve a cure!
For tickets to the game or information about Walk MS, please contact BROOKE GIDDINGS at (815) 980-2541.
