WisBusiness: They are urging you to…Join The Movement
7/3/2008

The Wisconsin Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is asking people to “Join the Movement”, stating, “MS stops people from moving. We exist to make sure it doesn’t.”

Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic disease that attacks the central nervous system, patients are affected in different ways by the disease. Although there are four main categories of MS, relapsing-remitting, primary-progressive, secondary progressive, and progressive relapsing, it is not always clear which category an affected individual is experiencing and how it will progress.

The MS Society, with its Wisconsin Chapter based in Hartland, has events and workshops, family programs, support groups, and provides research and treatment information to individuals suffering with MS, their families, caregivers and friends. More then 10,000 people nationwide currently have MS and the MS Society is working to diminish their suffering and eradicate the disease.

HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED

This month the Wisconsin Chapter of the National MS Society is holding luncheons during the week of the 20th in Green Bay, Milwaukee and Madison, as well as a golf scramble at Rock River Hills Golf Club the following week.

The first weekend of August, the Best Dam Bike Ride will take place with more then 2,000 cyclists biking 150 miles from Waukesha to Whitewater and raising more then 1.7 million dollars.
