Join the Movement


Abby, my niece, and I are putting together a quilt to be raffled at the Walk for MS. Our deadline is August 20, giving her some time for the presale (It can bring in between $600-1000).

The Challenge Walk takes place all over California on September 11-13. Abby's best friend from High School has MS so she and 5 friends do the walk together, my long time friend from church/college group is now confined to a wheelchair, the wife of a teacher at my school was diagnosed, and the wife of Jack's colleague from work has MS. It seems like this disease affects so many circles of friends and family.

Please consider donating either here or with your own connection.
Let's beat this devastating disease.

Worthy cause indeed. Daughter used to do the MS walk in HS each year. A counselor's wife has MS as well as her good friend's aunt. Best of luck.

Yes, MS does affect many of us. My aunt had it and passed some time ago. Hers was very progressive. A friend I used to work with was also diagnosed with it. It can be a very devastating and painful illness. Best of luck with the walk!!

I wonder if we all know someone affected. Good luck with the sales, I hope you make a big amount.
