Mission Statement

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Colorado-Wyoming Chapter's mission is to mobilize people and resources to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS.

Description

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease that affects the central nervous system by disrupting the flow of information from the brain to the body. It is an elusive disease with no known cause and no known cure. Symptoms vary from person to person depending on where the central nervous system is affected, making it hard to diagnose. MS generally strikes in the prime of life--ages 20-50, and 73 percent of those diagnosed are women.

• 14,000+ in Colorado and Wyoming are living with MS

The Colorado-Wyoming Chapter contributes research funds each year to the National MS Society's nearly $50 million annual research budget. The Society is the largest private MS research funder in the nation, providing support for 440 research projects worldwide. FDA approved medicines are now available that slow the progression of the disease.

Seeking out and engaging volunteers to the MS cause is at the very core of our business. We have opportunities across Colorado and Wyoming. To find out about opportunities in your area, please visit our website: http://www.nationalmssociety.org/Get-Involved/Volunteer

The people were very nice and we had fun stuffing goody bags.

This was my first big volunteer activity, and I absolutely loved it! The managers were quick with response with any questions, and they provided easy instructions. I met some great people, as they helped me prepare and help with the event. There were people always willing to lend a hand and help. I was very impressed, and I'll be looking forward to next year's walkathon!
