Thank you for supporting the National MS Society's 2016 On the Move Luncheon honoring Wendy Bedortha, Calpine Corporation, and Franelle Rogers. With your generosity, we raised a record breaking $300,000 and took powerful action to stop MS in its tracks, restore what has been lost, and end MS forever. Last year alone, through our comprehensive nationwide network, the Society devoted $122.2 million to help more than one million individuals connect to the people, information, and resources they need. To move closer to a world free of MS, the Society also invested $54 million to support more than 380 new and ongoing research projects around the world.
