Lubbock Community Shares the Vision for a World Free of MS
Walk MS: Lubbock, Presented by Sam’s Club, Supports MS Research, Services and Programs May 3 at Jones AT&T Stadium
Lubbock, Texas - Residents from Lubbock communities will join together for Walk MS: Lubbock, presented by Sam’s Club on Saturday, May 3 at Jones AT&T Stadium to make a powerful statement and keep moving toward a cure for multiple sclerosis. Walk MS is a signature fundraising event for the National MS Society that raises funds to support MS research and provide services to individuals impacted by multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system.
“Walk MS represents more than just an opportunity to raise awareness and funds towards the MS movement, it’s the chance for community members, neighbors, and families to come together and connect with one another,” notes Lyndee Groce, Development Manager. “Our team of exceptional volunteers and support staff work hard through events such as this to help people living with MS and their families move forward with their lives.”
Walk MS: Lubbock offers family, friends, neighbors and co-workers the opportunity to mobilize in support of Texas families impacted by MS. Participants can choose between a one-mile and 5K route. Participants will enjoy complimentary food and entertainment both before and after the event.
Visit walkmstexas.org to register to walk, volunteer or make a donation. Online registration is currently open. Registration is free, however all participants are encouraged to actively fundraise. The dollars raised support promising research to stop disease progression, restore function that has been lost and to end MS forever. Your dollars also help fund local programs for people living with MS right here in our community. The average participant raises $225 and fundraising prizes are awarded beginning at the $100 level. On-site registration and check-in begins at 9 a.m., followed by a 10 a.m. official start time.
