Mark your calendars – Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Week is March 11 - 17, 2013!
MS Awareness Week is a time for people affected by MS to connect with others, share knowledge and take action to increase awareness about the disease. Your voice and the connections you create will make the movement even more powerful.
Form a Walk MS, Bike MS: Coastal Challenge, Bike MS: Vegas Challenge or Challenge Walk MS team. Or, if you already have one, use MS Awareness Week to kick-off or boost your fundraising and recruitment efforts.
- Join an MS Awareness Week event in your neighborhood. Click on a region below to find fun activities, educational programs and fundraisers near you. Plus, see who's supporting MS Awareness Week in your community.
Or host your own event. Do It Yourself Fundraising is a chance for people to raise awareness and critical funds for the MS movement in new and creative ways. Visit www.DoItYourselfMS.org to get started today.
Ask a local business to support MS Awareness Week. For example...
- A portion of the proceeds of Stamoules Produce Company's broccoli sales during March will support Walk MS. Stamoules is also helping to raise MS awareness throughout North America in March by co-branding all of their broccoli boxes shipped to grocery stores with the National MS Society's "We Joined the Movement" logo and bundling their broccoli stems with an orange "MS--Join the Movement" rubber band.
