Team captains, we’re putting you in the spotlight.

January 11, 2016

Happy New Year! This week is National Team Captain Recruitment Week (January 11-17, 2016). We are celebrating all of our team captains (Bike MS, Challenge Walk MS and Walk MS) for helping us end MS forever. 

During National Team Captain Recruitment Week, we make it easier than ever to get registered for our fundraising events if you haven’t already. It’s our goal to have every team captain registered by week’s end.

We’ll also pass along some great tips for recruiting new members. And last, but definitely not least, the team captain who recruits and registers the most teammates from Jan. 11-17 will win a pair of Cardinals tickets to a mutually agreed upon 2016 game.

Haven't registered for our 2016 events yet?

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.
