Challenge Walk MS Philadelphia 2012 took place on Saturday, October 13, and Sunday, October 14. We would like to thank all of the volunteers who helped us before, during and after the event. This was a special year, our 10th anniversary, and we appreciate you taking the time, especially on such a cold weekend, to help our walkers as they raised valuable funds to support people living with MS. We are on target to raise $275,000!

MS Service Day - What a Difference a Day Made!

We could not have done it without you! Special thanks also go out to the local Let's Talk Connections group led by Janice Park for providing lunch for everyone, and the 2012 MS Leader's Circle for coordinating this event. We would like to make this an annual event, so stay tuned.
