The world of fashion and multiple sclerosis will come together on the runway on Wednesday, September 18, at the 8th Annual Women on the Move Luncheon to raise funds for the New York City – Southern New York Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The event, hosted by Angela Yee of “The Breakfast Club” morning show on New York's Power 105.1 FM, will honor Susan Cambria Pouch, of Ardsley on Hudson, who is the former director of the Southern New York Chapter (which has since merged with the New York City Chapter) and will feature guest speaker Lauren Bedford Russell, jewelry designer and star of Showtime’s The Real L Word. Pouch has been living with MS since 1987 and Russell since 2012.

“This is an exciting event because it’s a time when our models, all of whom are living with MS, have the opportunity to enjoy going down the runway in complete defiance of this disease which compromises so many people’s ability to move,” says Robin Einbinder, chapter president.
Bloomingdale’s White Plains will generously provide the wardrobe of athletic attire for the models to wear in “The Good Deed Project Fashion Show.

“Bloomingdale’s is once again thrilled to support the New York City – Southern New York Chapter of the National MS Society and MS research,” says Anne Keating, senior vice president of public relations and corporate philanthropy for Bloomingdale’s. "As a brand, we have a long history of supporting charitable initiatives in neighborhoods where we have stores and supporting this event in White Plains reinforces this goal."

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.
