Posted: Updated:

GOOD MORNING DELMARVA - The Delaware Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society has announced the 2014 Walk MS dates and is inviting all Delawareans to join the movement. Walk MS is a nationwide rallying point to help raise critical funds that support cutting edge research, drive change through advocacy, facilitate professional education, and provide programs and services to help people with MS move their lives forward.

To show support, each year loved ones, friends, and neighbors throughout Delaware - from Wilmington's Riverfront to Sussex County's Baywood Greens - lace up and step out in solidarity, with hopes of creating a world free of MS.

Each year, thousands of participants come out to celebrate hope and the accomplishments made in the MS Movement," said Linda Risk, Development Director. "Our dedicated walkers raised almost $300,000 last year, and we expect even greater success this year. We encourage everyone to join the movement in 2014 by creating a walk team, volunteering, or recruiting others."

About Multiple Sclerosis:
Multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with the disease. 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 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 400,000 people in the U.S. and over 2.3 million worldwide.

About the National Multiple Sclerosis Society:
MS stops people from moving. The National MS Society exists to make sure it doesn't. We help each person address the challenges of living with MS. In 2013 alone, through our national office and 50-state network of chapters, we devoted $164 million to programs and services that improved the lives of more than one million people. To move us closer to a world free of MS, the Society also invested $40 million to support more than 325 new and ongoing research projects around the world. Join the movement at nationalMSsociety.org. In Delaware, call (302) 655-5610. Or visit www.MSdelaware.org.
