Dinner of Champions

The Dinner of Champions is the National MS Society's premier gala event and pays tribute to the vast network of generous corporations, organizations and volunteer leaders who are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of people living with MS.

About the Honorees

This year’s Hope Honoree, Novartis, is being recognized for the advancements the company has made in the treatments of multiple sclerosis, helping people living with MS to live their best lives.

Krupp-photo.pngDr. Lauren Krupp, our Champion Honoree, is presented this distinction for her professional commitment to the care of people living with MS as well as her research accomplishments to improve the lives of those with MS. Dr. Krupp, professor of neurology, is the director of NYU Langone’s Multiple Sclerosis Comprehensive Care Center. The multi-disciplinary clinical and research program at NYU Langone treats children and adults and is one of the largest and most comprehensive programs of its type in the US. Dr. Krupp and her team perform research to advance the care of individuals with MS across the lifespan including disease modifying therapies to halt the disease process and therapies focused on enhancing quality of life. Her overarching goals are to end MS, and, until then, provide compassionate, comprehensive, cutting-edge care.

Caris LeVertThis year's Spirit Honoree, Caris LeVert, is being recognized for his ability to inspire hope through resilience, perseverance and dedication to the National MS Society's mission. LeVert, a rising-star for the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets, is passionate about the fight against MS as his mother lives with the disease. In April, he formed a team of family and friends for Walk MS New York City where he had his mother join him on stage as he delivered an impassioned speech, before the more than 4,000 walkers, about her life with MS and his hope that one day our world would be free of the disease.
