MSYLN Trivia Night
November 11, 2015
The MS Young Leaders Network (MSYLN) hosted a Trivia Night in San Francisco on November 11. The group partnered with Brainstormers and Rogue Ales Public House and sold wristbands to participants to raise money and awareness for the MS Society. MSYLN raised $741 for the Northern California Chapter, gained new members, and had a blast spreading the word about a great cause!
New members are always welcome to MSYLN. Members of The MS Young Leaders Network produce unique events and opportunities for young adults to connect with each other and with supporters, all while raising much needed funds and awareness in Northern California.

About the Northern California Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society
The Northern California Chapter of the National MS Society was chartered in 1954 and provides comprehensive programs, services and advocacy to assist and empower the more than 84,000 people who are affected by MS annually. The chapter is also a driving force of research for the prevention, treatment and cure of MS and contributes funds to support 350 National MS Society research projects worldwide – including almost $12 million in critical MS research initiatives locally at J. David Gladstone Institutes, UCSF, Stanford, UC Davis and UC Berkeley. The Chapter has offices in San Francisco, Sacramento, Central Valley and Silicon Valley.
About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide.
