Multiple sclerosis destroys connections. It disconnects the mind from the body and people from each other. This event has committed a significant amount of their proceeds to the Multiple Sclerosis Society Pacific South Coast Chapter Each.
Rotary is the longest active service organization with over 1.2 million members from more than 200 countries. Through their motto Service Above Self, Rotarians truly help make our local communities grow and prosper.
Millions of people are affected by MS and the challenges of living with its unpredictable symptoms. Multiple sclerosis interrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body and it stops people from moving. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.
