Join HSGP members at the Phoenix Zoo and Papago Park for the Phoenix MS Walk 2017 to raise funds for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often-disabling disease of the central nervous system, which disrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.
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. MS affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide. The first Walk MS event was in 1988, and, since then, more than $970 million has been raised for research and programs to improve the lives of people living with MS. Today, there are treatments where there weren't any before, and the dream of ending MS is becoming a reality. But there is still so much to do.
