The year of giving back

Happy new year!We've talked before about those pesky resolutions we all make at the start of a new year, but a few months in, we tend to lose the drive to get them accomplished.


Instead of overwhelming yourself with a bunch of resolutions, commit to one simple plan -- make 2012 the year of giving back. You could choose to volunteer at an event, offer your skills and talents in the chapter office, or become an advocate in your community.


Join the movement today and help to improve the quality of life for someone living with MS.

Walk MS logoThe planning for Walk MS 2012 is in full swing and we need your help. Walk MS is an event with a community feel. Our focus in 2012 is to involve more of the communities where a Walk MS event is being held. We want the experience for both the walkers and volunteers to be the best. This is where you come in.


We are looking for volunteers who would be willing to use their professional and personal connections in the community to bring attention and revenue to the event. If you are interested, contact Kathie Cronk for more information.

Thanks for taking action for people with MS

On January 9, Governor Chris Christie signed the New Jersey Multiple Sclerosis Task Force Bill. This bill creates a statewide task force in N.J. that will look at how multiple sclerosis impacts residents living with the disease and will make recommendations, both regulatory and legislatively, to address those issues.


Kudos go out to the volunteers on the New Jersey Government Relations Committee and everyone who reached out to their legislators encouraging them to vote in favor of this bill to make this happen.
