Wight Mixon’s sister, Becky, was diagnosed with MS more than 20 years ago. Since that time, Wight has joined her other three siblings in leading the global movement to do something about MS now. She first joined the movement through the Bike MS Ride in Northern Florida, but now participates in the Bike MS: Atlanta ride & many more Georgia Chapter events & programs.
A few years ago, Wight was asked to be a part of the Georgia Chapter MS Leadership Class program, where business leaders sharpen their leadership skills through meaningful interactions with top executives, while contributing to a world free of MS through fundraising efforts. Wight graduated from the 2011 class as a top fundraiser, and was inducted into the MS Leadership Class Hall of Fame.
Shortly after, Wight was elected to the Georgia Chapter Board of Trustees, where she currently serves as the Committee Chair for the MS Leadership Class program.
“MS is a cause very near and dear to my heart, as I watch my sister, who has primary progressive MS, deal with everything that it brings to her life. I remain dedicated to this cause not only because it’s important to my sister and my family, but I certainly have had my eyes opened just to how many people are affected by this disease.”
Wight’s devout support and engagement further helps the Georgia Chapter develop, deliver and leverage resources to enhance care for people with MS and quality of life for those affected by multiple sclerosis.
Take action today, join the movement and help us fulfill our vision of a world free of MS. Contact the Georgia Chapter for ways you can get involved (678) 672-1000.
