Team Captain Prism Power Walk MS: Westchester 2024


Why You Should Sponsor Me

NEWSOK, before you read the pre-written jargon, here is my update.  

I got an expensive custom made foot race for the first time. Thank You insurance.  I am also going to physical therapy twice a week. Both are helping my walking. 

It's been a 2 years since I have been on full time disability.  I have had to tighten my belt to make ends meet, but i am doing OK.  Even as my symptoms get worse, last years' walk was easier for me because it was cool with a slight drizzle.  That is  perfect for me, not so much the rest of my team...sorry.  

It took a while, but I just got this: 

It is a Wonka Golden Ticket for Disabled drivers in NYC.  It allows me much greater access to street parking in the 5 boroughs.  Boy is it a help...

Over 40 years ago I was diagnosed with MS. Many of the symptoms are invisible (gait, fatigue, etc.), but they affect me on a daily basis.  If you see me walk, I look drunk off my a**.  Stairs HAVE to have a rail for me to hold on to, or I'm not going near them.  If there is one thing you know about me is that I would like to see a cure found for MS.  I have participated in this event for many years now, and raised  over $150,000.  

Why We Want to Create a World Free of MS

Having multiple sclerosis means that you may not be able to walk when you wake up. Or that you may suddenly have impaired vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. The symptoms of MS are different for everyone - the only certainty is that it will affect yet another person every hour of every day.

What the National MS Society is doing

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society will use funds collected from Walk MS to not only support research for a cure tomorrow but also to provide programs which address the needs of people living with MS today. Because we choose to walk for those who sometimes can't, because we choose to donate to Walk MS, we are getting closer to the hour when no one will have to hear the words, "You have MS."
