Let's Move to Fight MS!

Help Team FollowYourDreaMS to Create a World Free of MS!

The number of people living with multiple sclerosis increases every hour of every day. This astonishing rate is not going to slow down, let alone stop, until we've found a cure. Research has made some incredible advances recently, but the world can still only offer disease management drugs and therapies to the 400,000 people living with MS in America.

We have put together this exciting event "Let's Move to Fight MS" because the National Multiple Sclerosis Society funds more MS research than any other private organization. In addition to supporting studies which hope to reveal the cause and course of the disease, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society also provides much needed education, programs, and services to everyone who is affected by MS - including the diagnosed, their friends and families, and the healthcare professionals who work with them.  

The money raised at this event will go directly to our team Follow Your DreaMS for Climb to the Top NYC - we will Climb the 66 flights to the Top of the Rock in March! 

There are so many ways to help create a world free of MS, and it all begins right here. Come join us for an afternoon of Indoor Cycling, Self Defense, Yoga, and more! It all begins Sunday, February 8th.  Let's move to Fight MS. Let's Move, for those who battle MS every day. Let's Move, for those who can't.
