WHY WE WALK
Walk MS is our rallying point to raise awareness and connect with our community. By participating at Walk MS, you are connected to the potential, the hope and the momentum of the movement toward a world free of MS. With the help of people like you, the New York City – Southern New York Chapter of the National MS Society addresses the challenges of each person whose life is affected by MS and leverages opportunities to build awareness for the Society and MS. Walk MS reaches a distinct audience and champions the Society’s mission.
Why do you walk?
Do you have MS? Does your spouse, partner, or family member have MS? Are you walking to support a friend or co-worker? Whatever your connection to Walk MS, we want to know. Send your story to walkMS@msnyc.org.
Welcome to the chapter's Virtual Wall of Hope.
The Virtual Wall of Hope is an online source of support, encouragement and hope to people living with MS and their loved ones. We encourage everyone to help fill the Virtual Wall of Hope. To share your message of hope, please email us at walkMS@msnyc.org.
As the Wall fills up, it will remind us all why we are walking and send a loving message to those who need our support the most.
"I walk because my friends and family give me strength."
I walk because all walking is discovery, On foot we take the time to see things whole. My Family & Friends give me the Strength.
I was recently diagnosed in February 2012. I walked for the first time in 2012 with only my husband and 2 close friends, because I was scared of what people would think of me. Within the last few months I have embraced my diagnoses and will be walking with a team of friends and family that support me on a day to day basis. Without support I would not be able to do all I do. Love my family and friends!
