Hundreds of walkers convened at Stinson Park in Aksarben Village on April 9, 2016, for Walk MS, a community event to raise funds to support medical research and patient care. Walk MS also connected people living with MS and those who care about them. It was an experience unlike any other—a day to come together and celebrate the progress that has been made in treating MS and to show the power of connection.
Cuddigan Law was proud to participate in Walk MS 2016. The firm also participates in and sponsors other fundraising events throughout the year.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and body. An unpredictable disease, MS often prevents people from being able to work and otherwise care for themselves. One key symptom of MS is fatigue. Other common symptoms include losses of balance and dexterity. Problems with hand weakness or motor control can disqualify those with MS from even doing sit-down jobs.
When you participate in Walk MS, the funds you raise give hope to the more than 11,000 people living with MS in our community. The dollars raised support life-changing programs and cutting-edge research and prove time and again that every connection counts.
