Sam’s Club fundraiser to benefit the Society

January 17, 2013

Beginning January 17 through February 25, 2013, Sam’s Club employees across the country will hold fun and creative fundraisers, such as chili and bake sales, to help people with MS move forward with their lives.  We too can help by donating to these critical efforts at a club location nearby.

Over the last two years, Sam’s Club employees have already raised nearly $3 million through their determined grassroots fundraising efforts in order to benefit people living with MS and the essential MS research needed to end MS forever.

As part of their commitment to giving back to the communities they serve, Sam’s Club has for a third year rallied and inspired employees to host fundraisers just outside club locations and through internal employee initiatives.  In addition, they are continuing their support and encouragement of employee volunteer service hours at Society chapters across the U.S.

According to reports from Sam’s Club employee team leaders, everyone is revved up and determined to break last year’s fundraising totals.  The more we can assist these dedicated teams to understand how we make a difference in their communities, the more likely they will be able to meet and exceed their goals.

Don’t forget to share this information with friends and family, and extend your appreciation to Sam’s Club employees for their commitment to helping create world free of MS.

About Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide.
