A message from our Walk MS Chairman

I would like to thank all members of our Support Group who participated in this year's Walk MS 2015 fundraising and the walk event on March 21st.
As you know a lot of planning & work goes into this annual NMSS effort. Without your support this can't take place.

As you all are aware we hope that research will finally lead to not only treatments but a cure.

This year's Walk MS at The Villages raised a total of $57,324. Of that, our support group "Villages MS Support Team" raised a total of $36,194!
Job well done!
I can say I am proud to be part of the MSVP Support Group!

For the Walk MS 2015 Planning Committee,
Steve Berkovitz
