Join us for the 8th Annual Hockey Fights MS Maryland Tournament May 31 - June 2, 2019 at Ice World in Abingdon, MD! 

Proceeds from our 8th Annual Maryland Tournament will benefit Johns Hopkins Project RESTORE, a research collaborative leading the battle against multiple sclerosis, transverse myelitis, neuromyelitis optica and other neuroimmunological diseases.  It offers a means for patients, families, friends and other donors to support research that can help REcover function for patients, STOp progression of disease and disability and REgenerate nerve cells and myelin. 

Project RESTORE coordinates scientists and physicians across Johns Hopkins, where research and clinical care develop together and inform one another’s progress. RESTORE's team of neurologists, rehabilitation specialists, neuropsychiatrists, neurosurgeons, neuro-ophthalmologists, therapists and other scientists facilitates the evaluation and management of patients affected by multiple sclerosis, transverse myelitis and neuromyelitis optica. With this multidisciplinary approach, they are able to address patients’ neurological needs while providing long-term management plans for all health problems associated with these conditions. 

To date, Hockey Fights MS has raised over $280,000 for MS research and rehabilitation, but we could do so much more with your help! By making a tax deductible donation, you are supporting research and helping thousands of patients living with MS and other neuroimmunological diseases. We hope you will consider being a part of a great cause by making a gift securely online here and also encourage you to visit us at the rink this summer!
