Yes, you can walk for this great cause. It turns out though, that there is more than one way to get involved.

Multiple Sclerosis is such an insidious disease. By definition, 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. Some famous faces that you may recognize are actress Teri Garr, the late Richard Pryor, and even Ozzy's son, Jack Osbourne. Celebrities may put a "face" on the disease, but it's the millions of others that fight the fight every day of this, as yet, incurable disease that we need to reach out to.

The Connecticut Chapter of the National MS Society provides funds for people suffering from the chronic disease. There are MS Fundraising walks and runs in Connecticut on April 24, April 30 and May 1. If golf is more your style, there is an event on September 29 that you can get a group together for. How about biking for the cause? You can do that on June 5 & 12 in Connecticut. Info about all of these events is available at

Of course, there is the possibility that you've read this and thought that you'd really like to help, but you aren't into doing any of these events. Maybe, as you read it, you thought of a different great idea. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society wants you to act on that creativity and desire. They have a Do - It - Yourself fundraising page too.

Wouldn't it be amazing to find a cure for MS in our lifetime?
