STATE – MS Awareness Week takes place March 8-14, and the New Jersey Metro of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is asking everyone to MOVE IT to end MS now. You can show your commitment to the MS movement with simple actions throughout the week.
“Whether you’re a Move It maverick or a Move It motivator, you can make a difference in the lives of the 13,000 people who live with MS in New Jersey,” said Michael Elkow, president of the Society’s New Jersey Metro Chapter. “There are fun and easy activities throughout MS Awareness Week that will make you feel ‘good’ while you do good,” Elkow continued.
The New Jersey Metro Chapter will begin the week hosting an accessibility tour of the State Capital Building in Trenton on Monday, March 8. Do your shopping at Fairway Market in Paramus Wednesday, March 10 and 10 percent of all purchases between the hours of 2 –10 p.m. will be donated to the New Jersey Metro Chapter. The week will also feature a teleconference on “Cognition and MS” taking place Thursday, March 11. On Friday, March 12, wear orange to show your support. Other inspirational activities will be going on throughout the week, so join the fun.
