MHM Raises more than $30,000 for the National MS Society

Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling, disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Millions of people are affected by MS and the challenges of living with its unpredictable symptoms, which range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis.

In partnership with the Methodist Healthcare System, we have formed a team to participate in the Bike MS: Valero Ride to the River on October 11 & 12.

Bike MS is a weekend-lone and life-long opportunity to make a difference. It's a group effort that transcends personal accomplishment and touches the lives of thousands of people affected by MS in our community.

Our 2014 fundraising goal is $72,500. To date, we have recruited 70 members to the team and raised over $30,000 to support cutting-edge research and programs and services for everyone impacted by MS.
