MS stops people from moving. Through this campaign you can make sure it doesn't.
Join the movement!
Co-Chairs Ryan Kerrigan of the Washington Redskins, Brooks Laich of the Washington Capitals and Scott Russi of Cushman & Wakefield are happy to announce the 2014 campaign for the MS Achiever of the Year!
Sponsored by The Secor Group, this fundraising competition is hosted by the National Capital Chapter of the National MS Society. Men and women vie for the title of "MS Achiever of the Year" and the funds that they raise go toward:
Research for a cure for multiple sclerosis, and
Programs right here in the D.C. metro community, including direct financial assistance, scholarships for kids, respite funding for caregivers, and transportation so that our clients living with MS can see a doctor.
The title goes to the man or woman who raises the most money before our Awards Night on Monday, September 29, 2014. The winner, and runners-up, celebrate with great prizes, including tickets to sporting events, visits with professional athletes, and MORE! The "Class of 2014" is recognized in a 1/2-page newspaper ad, along with photos and accolades posted on local websites.
