We're taking a step towards a world free of MS.

Please join us for TEAM JILLIAN's 14th year at WALK MS

Jillian was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2008 when she was 23 years old. Like most of you, we had heard of MS - but didn't know anything about what this disease can do to your mind and your body.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a very unpredictable disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. 

MS is different for everyone and that makes it all the more challenging to solve. If you know Jill, you know she keeps life positive and hides her bad days well. Her symptoms are different every day. They can include numbness, weakness and tingling in her arms and legs and face, double and blurred vision, extreme fatigue, joint pain, migraines, slurred speech, brain fog.

The first Walk MS event was in 1988, and since then more than $920 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. We formed Team Jillian the year she was diagnosed and we won't stop until there is a cure.

The money raised will drive groundbreaking research, provide life-changing programs and guarantee a supportive community for those who need it most. The National MS Society has been there for Jillian since she was diagnosed - and we are so incredibly thankful for the work they do.

Help us get one step closer to finally saying there is a cure for Multiple Sclerosis
