Be Inspired. Get Connected. Walk MS.

Walk teamWhat if we could connect every person living with MS? Every person who cares about someone with MS. Every family affected by it. Everyone who has seen what this disease can do to people. What if we could come together, even one day a year, to show the power of our connections? At Walk MS, our connections become more powerful than the connections MS destroys.

Walk MS is taking place on April 21, May 4 and May 5 at 14 sites across the Greater Delaware Valley. Click here to find a site near you. Sites include the Philadelphia Museum of Art on the banks of the Schuylkill River, family-favorite the Ocean City Boardwalk at the Jersey Shore, and our newest site - the Devon Horse Show and Country Fair. Register now, connect with others and start fundraising today.

If you have any questions, please contact the Walk MS team. We hope to see you there!

Dignity 2 Study

Are you living with neurogenic overactive bladder problems due to multiple sclerosis? Then you may be eligible to take part in the DIGNITY 2 study. The DIGNITY 2 study is a global medical research study of a new investigational dosage of an approved medication to control urinary incontinence (leakage) as a result of the overactive bladder problems that can occur in people with multiple sclerosis. The aim of the DIGNITY 2 study is to test whether this new dose is also effective at reducing urinary leakage, and to evaluate the side effects related to this new dose.
