The Connecticut Chapter raises funds through events such as walk MS, bike MS, MS Golf Classic, WAMS luncheons, MS Connecticut Citizen of The Year Gala, MS Dinner of Champions and many others, to ensure ongoing scientific research to find a cause, advanced treatments and a cure for multiple sclerosis. These funds also provide for vital programs and services offered by the chapter to the more than 6,000 Connecticut residents battling the potentially debilitating effects of MS. These programs and services include: information and referral, education, scholarship programs, health and wellness programs, family and social support services, programs designed to address accessibility issues, long-term care assistance and much more.
We are devoted to ending the devastating effects of multiple sclerosis. For more than 60 years the National MS Society, with its nationwide network of chapters and branches, has moved to create a world free of MS and improve the quality of life for those affected by MS. Through the work of chapters, the society funds research, provides services, furthers education and promotes public policy development on behalf of 400,000 Americans living with MS. Since its founding the society has invested more than $721 million to find the cause, treatments and a cure for multiple sclerosis.
With the help of people like you – our event participants, donors, volunteers and corporate partners -- the National MS Society, Connecticut Chapter addresses the challenges of each person whose life is affected by MS and helps them stay connected to the great big moving world.
MS stops people from moving.
We exist to make sure it doesn’t.
