Wheels and Heels Against MS 2016!

A special post from my brother Paul Keohane:



Hi, everyone -

As the summer continues to swelter along, the MS Challenge Walk is fast approaching. 

After being unable to participate in last year’s event, Anne is more determined than ever to get back on her bike and return to battle in our fight against Multiple Sclerosis!  Although Anne’s MS continues to try and get the best of her, she fights back even harder.  She refuses to let MS win and I never cease to be amazed and inspired by her courage.

On September 9th, we will return to the roads and bike paths of Cape Cod for our 3-Day, 50-mile journey.  As the MS Challenge Walk enters its 15th year, we remain determined and steadfast to celebrate that day when MS is nothing but a memory.

Multiple Sclerosis is a frightening disease that affects the central nervous system.  The symptoms may be mild (such as numbness in the limbs) or severe enough to cause blindness or paralysis. The severity and specifics of the symptoms of MS can’t yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are giving hope to those affected by the disease.

Each year, we have looked to you for your emotional and financial support.  And each year, you answer the call and prove yourselves true heroes to our cause.  We hope that you will continue by our side as we walk and ride again to stamp out MS once and for all.  No donation is too small!

Your donations to the National MS Society not only help fund vital research, but also go towards helping those who battle this disease every day.  
   
As in the past, there are two ways you can donate.
