Women on the Move Luncheon

April 24, 2014

You are cordially invited to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Central & Eastern Virginia Chapter’s Women on the Move Luncheon.

Multiple sclerosis stops people from moving, the Women on the Move Luncheon brings together professional women and men, as well as community leaders, to make sure it doesn’t. Featuring a celebrity speaker who performs and shares their personal connection to MS, this networking event is sure to educate, motivate and inspire.

The Women on the Move Luncheon was founded by women who wanted to come together in bringing us closer to a world free of MS. Two thirds of people living with MS are women and women are also often caregivers. The Women on the Move Luncheon is a great opportunity to empower those affected by MS while also spreading awareness.

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.
