A word from Captain Stark: The Seventh Fleet is putting together a team for the upcoming MS Walk in Salt Lake City on Saturday, April 27th. It is being assembled by Lt. Commander Russell Boltz from the PCU Essex. His email with the details is posted below. If you can help out by volunteering or donating, please do so at the links below.
Two friends of mine have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Since then, it has been my mission to get in shape, to live a healthy lifestyle, and to do something about MS now. That is why I am walking in Walk MS 2013http://goo.gl/KRCPB>on April 27th at the Gateway Mall with Starfleet Command’s Seventh Fleet http://www.seventhfleet.org>.
MS interrupts the flow of information from the brain to the body and stops people from moving. Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. Symptoms vary from person to person. One person may experience fatigue and numbness, while another may
experience dizziness and have loss of balance. Local Walk MS events are connecting communities to end MS forever. This event raises critical funds to support local programs and cutting-edge research. Your participation puts us closer to realizing our promise to STOP MS in its tracks, RESTORE lost function and END MS forever. Ending MS means no one will receive an MS diagnosis again. Every step counts. Every dollar helps. Every connection matters.
This year, I have pledged to raise at least $250 to move us closer to a world free of MS. Please support my fundraising efforts. Your donation will help the National MS Society provide award-winning programs and services for those affected by MS.
$35 — Could assist self-help groups in supporting people affected by MS in our community.
$65 — Could fund wellness programs, aimed at treating the mind, body and spirit.
$120 — Could help pay for a physical therapy session to manage MS symptoms by enhancing strength and mobility.
$200 — Could help fuel our cause to help influence change by engaging elected officials to make multiple sclerosis a national priority.
$400 — Could help fund a researcher working towards a cure.
