14th Annual Houston On the Move Luncheon

Presented by:
Cadence Bank

The 14th annual Houston On the Move Luncheon, benefiting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society will take place Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at the River Oaks Country Club. With more than $1.8 million raised since the luncheon began in 2006 it is fueling the impact of groundbreaking research and critical programs and services.

The luncheon is under the leadership of Luncheon Chairs, Katie Brass, Rita Joubran and Joy McCormack and Honorary Chair, Franelle Rogers. The MS Society is thrilled to announce, Jon Strum, the host of the RealTalk MS podcast, will join us as the keynote speaker. Each week, RealTalk MS reaches thousands of listeners with news, views, interviews, and breakthroughs that people affected by MS should know. Since 1997, Jon has been a caregiver for his wife Jeanne, who lives with progressive MS. This year honorees are Steve Susman with Susman Godfrey LLP as the Person On the Move and Cadence Bank as the Company On the Move.
