Walking for a Cure for Multiple Sclerosis
Many of you may know, and some of you may not, that my brother, a few years younger than me, was just diagnosed with multiple sclerosis this past fall. My aunt has also been disabled by MS and plagued by its existence in her body for the last 20 years.
To that end, PYTS took on a role as corporate sponsor for a team, Living Well Walking Warriors, for this past weekend's MS Walk 2009 at NC Zoological Park. Threatening thunderstorms could not keep our family way, 17 strong, from all showing up to support our brother, son, nephew, and grandson, Jeremy, and our aunt, daughter, and mother, Karen. All told, we were able to collect more than $2500 in just under a month. We hope to see that amount grow each year!
Thanks to everyone for their support, and we hope and pray that one day no one will ever have to hear the words, "you have MS", again.
