Proceeds from the event will benefit MS Run The US, INC. Every week about 200 people in the United States are diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. MS can affect a person in subtle or dramatic ways. “On a personal level this is a disease that has impacted my family for my entire life“, explains Race Director Jeremiah Allen.
“From my first memories, I knew of MS as a horrible disease. My grandfather had it and most of my memories were of him in his bed. After his passing I did not really think of MS until my mother was diagnosed when I was about 15. She continues to fight and now I have found a way to help fight through MS run the US, INC. This organization uses its funds to further research and to also help ease burdens of those suffering with MS. The hope, is that this race will help those locally that we all know struggle with MS and around the world through research. Please help us run for the cure!”
