Multiple Sclerosis Society seeks walkers, volunteers, for Albemarle MS Walk

ALBEMARLE — The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Mid-Atlantic Chapter, is seeking walkers and volunteers to participate in or assist with the 2007 Albemarle MS Walk at Albemarle YMCA Park on April 14, 2007. The MS Walk is an annual event to raise money and promote awareness of Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

The Mid-Atlantic Chapter will host MS Walks in 19 cities across North and South Carolina in the spring of 2007, including the walk in Albemarle on April 14. The chapter serves the entire state of South Carolina as well as 33 counties of North Carolina by providing programs for people living with MS and their families, and by raising money for national MS research.

Volunteers are needed to help with festivities, food, route marking, and medic stations.

There is no cost to walk, but participants are encouraged to raise money prior to the walk. All monies raised go to support programs for local clients living with MS, and MS research. For details on walking or volunteering, contact Jackie Dautel at jackie.dautel@ncp.nmss. org or 800-477-2955.

“Whether the walk helps one person living with MS, or whether it helps millions learn about the effects that MS has on people who live with it every day, our efforts will be worthwhile,” said Anne Marie McDermott, National Multiple Sclerosis Society Mid-Atlantic Chapter President.

The MS Walk as a nationwide event has been instrumental in making the National MS Society the provider of more research funding, information, and programs for people with MS than any other national voluntary MS organization in the world.
