This year’s keynote speaker is California native Ronda Giangreco. After being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2008, Ronda made an audacious vow to her family and friends that she would create a big Italian feast every Sunday night for an entire year as a meansto cope with her MS. Over the course of 52 weeks, Ronda learned from the stories of others that the challenges we face help form the core of who we are and give us insight into our own strength. Attend the On the Move Luncheon to hear Ronda’s inspiring story. Thanks to Acorda Therapeutics for sponsoring Ronda’s travel fees.
The program will also feature auctioneers Marci Mannis and Kristin Anderson from Where Auction Meets Comedy®. "We put the "fun" in fund-raising!" Click here for more information!
While many families struggle with the financial demands of sending a child to college, the impact on families affected by multiple sclerosis is particularly severe. The National MS Society provides scholarships to help local students with MS or those who have a parent with MS pursue post-secondary education.
It's not uncommon for some students to defer college acceptance to work and save, for others to resist asking their parents to co-sign student loans and for others to turn down a scholarship for lack of funds to cover all the non-tuition expenses. This is why the National MS Society started an MS scholarship program and this year, the Upper Midwest Chapter awarded scholarships to 72 students.
