I was recently contacted by some friends about the National Multiple Sclerosis awareness campaign this week. I’ve known several people to suffer from MS and have been touched by seeing others mention that they have had family members afflicted with MS. Therefore this week I’m going to donate my Facebook status to the MS campaign to generate awareness. You can find out more about the campaign and how you can get involved by clicking on the “Move It” badge in the right hand column.
Join the National MS Society’s “Be the Hero” photo campaign to promote awareness about MS by submitting your own photo of everyday MS heroes. The campaign features everyday heroes in orange capes involved in seven areas of awareness: advocacy, Walk MS, social media, fundraising, registering with the Society, encouraging those with MS to “get the facts,” and volunteering. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place. Click here to learn more or go to the The National Multiple Sclerosis Society – Eastern NC Chapter Facebook page.
