Walk MS at IUPUI

The National MS Society  kicked off their annual Walk MS at IUPUI Saturday April 30th and A Sign By Design was there to fight against multiple sclerosis.

Saturday walkers took steps to boost awareness of multiple sclerosis, and raised money to find a cure and provide treatment and support services. Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system, the society website said. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and affect individuals differently.

About 20 teams signed up for the 2011 Walk MS Event to work towards a $25,000 fundraising goal to fund research for a cure while helping people diagnosed with MS lead more fulfilling lives.
