$65,000 raised since 2010 is remarkable-and it is all because of YOU! Team Sweaty Already is back again this year raising funds for Multiple Sclerosis at the MS Challenge Walk Cape Cod—we are so thankful for your continued support and encouragement as we work hard to find a cure for MS.
For those who may not know, multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. The cause of MS is still unknown and most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50. There are more therapies approved for treating MS – and more in the pipeline – than at any other time in history—but we can’t stop until a cure is found. More than 2.3 million people are affected by this disease worldwide—we fundraise for them!
We are participating in Challenge Walk MS: Cape Cod on September 7-9, 2018. This 3 day 50-mile walk is more than an endurance event. It’s an amazing experience grounded in camaraderie and marked by passion, inspiration, determination and enjoyment—seriously—we do absolutely LOVE this weekend despite walking 50 miles! This will be Derek’s first year walking—we are SO excited to welcome him to the MS Challenge Walk family—nice job to Marissa for recruiting him! The walk does test our strength and our spirit, and we usually have blisters and sore muscles, but it makes an extraordinary difference in the lives of people with MS and their families including Susan Hardimon and the many many others we know who are affected by this disease.
We wouldn’t be able to walk, and raise as much funds as we have without your support. Seriously—throughout the weekend we are reminded of the wonderful people like YOU who support us. In order to walk as a team, we have committed to raise nearly $9,000 for the National MS Society—but wouldn’t it be awesome to raise over $10,000 so we can get to $75,000 raised? Let’s do this!
Your support—whether it is playing cornhole, buying raffle items, sponsoring, or making a general donation means so much! We hope to see you out at one of our events this summer.
