I am pleased to announce that DJ-BrianC will be providing MC and Musical Entertainment for the MS Walk Augusta Maine Event this Sunday, April 28th, 2013 at the YMCA. This walk is to raise money to help people living with this disease. Also on hand at this event is M’s Photography who will be photographing the events activities.
A little background about the MS Society as taken from their Facebook page:
For more than 60 years, the Greater New England Chapter has provided help for today, and hope for tomorrow to more than 18,000 individuals and families affected by MS in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont.
To mobilize people and resources to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS.
The National MS Society helps each person address the challenges of living with MS. The Greater New England Chapter spends about $4 million annually to serve more than 18,000 individuals and their families who are affected by MS in Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Among the wide range of MS education, support, advocacy, and services are care coordination (Home LINKS), respite care, financial assistance, professional education, and community-based outreach; plus effective lobbying at the state and federal level to change public policies that directly affect people with disabilities from MS and other causes. Another $3 million funds national research and programs; however, there is more than $20 million in ongoing Society-funded MS research projects at local medical, academic, and scientific institutions.
The National MS Society is a collective of passionate individuals who want to do something about MS now — to move together toward a world free of multiple sclerosis. MS stops people from moving. We exist to make sure it doesn’t.
