Our goal — advocacy, awareness and much-needed funds for MS

Starting on February 27th, 2022, we (Jon Franko and Matthew Porter) will run 100 miles from the St. Louis area to Jefferson City to meet with our elected state officials to advocate on behalf of all Missourians living with MS. We’ll do this in one 20-30 hour segment and we’ll start two days before the 2022 State Action Day on March 1st. This is not a relay and we will BOTH be running the full distance.


Because there is yet to be a cure for multiple sclerosis - a disease that afflicts us both. Because we still have the gift of running. And because our public officials need to see how committed we are, how much we all fight for every single step and what MS can look like. 

Please support our activity today.

We’ve set an ambitious goal because we know that with support from people like you we can get there. The money raised will help fund amazing progress in MS research, as well as programs and services that ensure people affected by MS can live their best lives. We’d love your support as we prepare for this and if you want to do more than make a donation, join us!
