BENEFITING: National Multiple Sclerosis Society
EVENT DATE: Oct 14, 2017
Hi Everyone!!! I was recently accepted on the Aiello Inspiration Team for the Hartford Marathon Foundation. I'm looking to donate this race to my Grandmother. For those who aren't aware, she lost her battle to MS this past May. She would be so proud of me if she were here, talking my ears off. Please help me raise some money for MS awareness and trying to find a cure!! Every $1 helps!!
Multiple sclerosis (MS) involves an immune-mediated process in which an abnormal response of the body’s immune system is directed against the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. The exact antigen — or target that the immune cells are sensitized to attack — remains unknown, which is why MS is considered by many experts to be "immune-mediated" rather than "autoimmune."
