Walk MS Coming To A City Near You


During the month of April communities come together in eastern Washington and northern Idaho to join the Inland Northwest Chapter of the National MS Society with the goal to raise support for friends and families touched by multiple sclerosis.  That support comes in the form of participating in one of the Walk MS events....the Chapters largest fundraiser.  Walk MS is a simple but incredibly powerful way to stand together and be together to help people with MS moving their lives forward. You can join the movement in a city near you!

The Inland Northwest Chapter hosts Walk MS events in four cities.

Because.......
  Multiple sclerosis is a devastating, neurological disease of the central nervous system.

  Its chronic symptoms are unpredictable and often disabling. The damage is irreparable.

  Twice as many woman as men have MS and most symptoms occur between age 20 and 50 years of age.

  The inland Northwest has one of the highest rates of MS in the United States and in the world.

Nationwide, approximately 400,000 Americans have MS.
Every week about 200 people are diagnosed with MS.
Every hour of everyday someone is diagnosed with MS. Now more than ever, 2500 people living in the Inland Northwest Chapter with MS need our help, and we cannot do it without you.  Please register for Walk MS now online by visiting www.walkMSnorthwest.org or by calling 509-482-2022, and "Join the Movement" towards a world free of MS.
