MS addressed in Houston walk

October 14, 2012 by  

Houston hikers who would like to help the fight against multiple sclerosis (MS) can take part in the 2012 Walk MS: Houston next month, beginning at the University of Houston. The walk is one of the leading MS fundraisers in Texas, with monies supporting research and progress in the areas involved with multiple sclerosis.

MS is a chronic central nervous system disease and is unpredictable in its progression. As it is an autoimmune disorder, it attaches to a person’s healthy tissue, resulting in blurred vision, numbness, fatigue, problems with memory or focus, or loss of balance and coordination. There is no known cure for MS, although great progress has been made with disease-modifying drugs over the past 15 years, which tend to slow down the progression.

The 2012 Walk MS: Houston event provides food for participants and entertainment for everyone. Families are encouraged to join together and walk as teams. There is no age limit and everyone is welcome, although children should be accompanied by adults during the event.

Printing companies frequently participate with fundraisers of this type in producing print materials to advertising the event and solicit participation. Flyer printing is a common order as flyers are easily distributed from many locations. They can be printed en masse and generally contain information regarding the event, location, times, activities and costs involved.

The walk is set to start at 9:00 am on Sunday, November 11. For more information, or to sign up, visit the 2012 Walk MS: Houston website.
