Women On the Move – Pittsburgh

A Luncheon that Feeds Awareness

We invite you to an inspirational afternoon. Support amazing women who have been affected by MS by joining us for the Women on the Move Luncheon. Our goal is simple: To raise funds for and awareness of multiple sclerosis.

Keynote Speaker

Cheryl Hile
Cheryl Hile

I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in October 2006. Within a year, demyelination had weakened the electrical signal from my brain to my right shin. Because of that, I constantly felt like I was going to stub my toes while running. During a race, I started tripping and falling, and finished the run with bloody knees. Soon after, I learned the falling was due to foot drop, a common symptom of MS. I wanted to find a way to keep running, but my neurologist told me to ‘lower [my] expectations.’ Those words did not settle well with me, so I searched on my own for a solution.

Why should women get involved with this event?

Did you know that three-quarters of the people living with MS are women? Women are also the ones who often provide care for their loved ones living with MS. If you are a woman interested in meeting other women who are taking the lead to change the face of MS, this luncheon is for you!

Ask from the Heart

An important aspect of the luncheon will be raising funds for cutting-edge research, that drives change through advocacy, facilitates professional education, collaborates with MS organizations around the world, and provides services designed to help people with MS and their families move their lives forward.

Women throughout the Pittsburgh area are invited to join the movement, supporting amazing women that have been affected by MS through a premier fundraising luncheon. Along with your support, the National MS Society connects and finds local resources and information to help people live their best lives.
