I have Multiple Sclerosis. I was diagnosed 10 years ago. I have been wanting to do this walk for some time. Now is my time! I realize not everyone can go and be a walking participant. But if you could make any kind of donation, it would be greatly appreciated.
Before you dismiss this event thinking “I can’t afford to donate any money right now with the economy the way it is,” I want you to consider a few things…
1. People don’t stop getting diagnosed and living with MS when the economy is in a slump. Now, more than ever, The National MS Society can use your help. The money you donate not only goes to fund research, support groups and other programs, but it also financially helps families deal with the cost of items like cooling products and even college scholarships.
2. Everyone can use another deduction on their taxes. 100% of whatever amount you donate to The National MS Society is tax-deductible. Not only that, but 78% of the money you donate goes directly to fund research, programs and education. That’s one of the highest percentages out there among charitable organizations.
3. If that doesn't inspire you, how about this...MS can cause blurred vision, loss of balance, poor coordination, slurred speech, tremors, numbness, extreme fatigue, problems with memory and concentration, paralysis and blindness… and there is no cure or effective treatment. Once again, I am asking for your financial support in my pursuit to raise funds to find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis and to provide support for those affected by MS.
Please click on the link below to go directly to my personal fundraising page. No amount is too small. Every dime makes a difference.
If you would rather send a check, please send it to:
(payable to The National MS Society)
4991 Gardenia Ave #122
Oakley, CA 94561
Your continued encouragement and faith in my ability to accomplish my fitness and fundraising goals are more than I could hope for. I hope you will find it in your heart to contribute to the fight against Multiple Sclerosis. Your donation will make a difference in someone’s life. May you realize success in your own endeavors. Thank you for joining the movement!
MS Stops people from moving. I walk to make sure it doesn't.
Thanks for taking the time to read this,
P.S. I would appreciate it if you would forward this event to as many people as you can to encourage them to donate as well. Thanks again.
