Starkville, MS January 15, 2013- The Alabama-Mississippi Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society is preparing for its annual Walk MS in Starkville on Saturday, April 13, 2013 at the Mississippi State University Research Park. Check-in opens at 8:00 am and the walk begins at 9:00 am. The walk will go on rain or shine. The funds raised during the walk will help support services for the more than 2400 people living with MS in Mississippi and fund research to find a cure for this chronic disease of the central nervous system.
Walk MS: Golden Triangle Region is an event that gathers those in the community who care about MS, but it also supports research and helps people with MS move their lives forward. After the walk, the celebration will continue at the MSU Research Park with refreshments, awards, announcements, and entertainment.
Multiple Sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. 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.
