Preakness at the Piazza
We would like to thank everyone who attended the first ever Preakness at the Piazza event on Saturday, May 18. We were excited to see so many people dressed to impress and having fun for a good cause. More than 800 people helped us raise $100,000 to support vital programs and services and cutting-edge research. Thank you for making a difference in the fight against MS.
