From dinner dances to golf tournaments, and everything in between, many of our fundraising efforts are by people in the local community who take it on themselves to plan, organize, and execute events. These events help to support our mission to create a world free of multiple sclerosis. Community fundraising events will be posted here as they develop. For more information about events or to learn how to do a fundraiser to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, please contact Kristin Kostecki at the Greater New England Chapter at Kristin.Kostecki@nmss.org, 1-800-344-4867 option 2, ext. 111.
