Blue Ridge

The Blue Ridge Chapter works to improve the quality of life for people affected by MS in western Virginia, the state of West Virginia, and 7 counties in Kentucky and raise funds for critical MS research. Join the movement toward a world free of MS.


Central & Eastern Virginia and Blue Ridge Unite

The Central & Eastern Virginia and Blue Ridge chapters are joining together to form the Virginia – West Virginia Chapter of the National MS Society serving over 12,000 people affected by MS throughout Virginia and West Virginia, as well three counties in northeastern North Carolina and seven counties in southeastern Kentucky. This realignment of resources will help us enhance programs, services, and advocacy opportunities; improve operating efficiencies; raise more money; and, increase our MS research commitment.

The combined strengths of volunteers, staff and others who care about MS will move us closer to the ultimate goal that we all share—a world free of MS. We will maintain offices in Richmond, VA; Virginia Beach, VA; Charlottesville, VA; and Charleston, WV. Additionally, the offices in these communities will continue to deliver programs, services and advocacy, as well as partner with local companies and organizations to ensure that Society events like Bike MS, Walk MS, Women on the Move Luncheons, and Dinner of Champions continue and grow. We welcome this opportunity to better serve you.
