Aberdeen, MD- Lisa Graham has been participating in Walk MS since her multiple sclerosis (MS) diagnosis in June of 2001. She has walked at sites across Maryland, making her way to what she calls her “latest walking station,” Aberdeen’s Ripken Stadium. MS is an unpredictable, often disabling neurological disorder. It is her dedication and dreams of finding a cure that drew her to Walk MS events.
“I believe that Walk MS will be the leading factor in raising the dollar that finds the cure, at least that is what my heart believes,” says Graham.
Graham describes Walk MS as an event to build connections- where those affected by MS gather together for the same purpose- stopping the devastating effects of multiple sclerosis. This year, 11 Walk MS sites will raise money and awareness for the 10,000 people living with MS in Maryland.
Completing the Walk each year gives Graham a great feeling as she knows she has done her part to support those living with MS.
“Each year when you cross the finish line the feeling is the same wonderful joy knowing that you have just helped,” says Graham.
This year, Graham will be walking on April 21 in Aberdeen. The event starts and finishes at Ripken Stadium, beginning at 9 a.m. To register: www.walkmsaryland.org or 800-FIGHT-MS.
