WAMS Website Picture 02 Nearly 75% of all people diagnosed with MS are women. Women Against MS (WAMS) is a nationwide education fundraising campaign that creates an inspiring and powerful, motivational environment. Join us as we gather to learn more about MS and the women it impacts as we celebrate the strength and grace of women with MS. As you enjoy a fine lunch at the gorgeous Arizona Biltmore Resort and Spa, you will also have the opportunity to purchase exquisite cakes from local bakeries and browse our silent auction.

Prepare to be inspired by our phenomenal keynote speaker. We are honored to welcome marathon runner Cheryl Hile, who in 2017 became the first person with MS to run 7 marathons on 7 continents in one year! She is pictured above with her husband, Brian, in Antarctica.

Woman of Courage Award Recipient: Kaila Strong

Receiving the Woman of Courage award is an amazing honor. I’m blessed to be given the ability and time to support those who persevere everyday like my mom does. She’s my reason, and will always be the reason for my drive, my passion and my courage. I want to thank the National MS Society Arizona Chapter for this amazing honor and for inspiring courage in a world that should be free of MS. – Kaila Strong

The Arizona Chapter provides programs and services for more than 8,000 people affected by MS in Arizona. Funds from WAMS directly assist and empower those in Arizona with MS. For thousands of people with MS, these things mean the difference between living a full and active life and just existing.

Join us for this special day while making a difference in the movement to end multiple sclerosis.
