The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Oregon Chapter was grateful for the generosity of more than 360 guests who helped raise a record $328,000.
Ann Berryman, Director of Major Giving, explained, “Family, friends and colleagues committed to fund important research, programs and services for people that are dealing with the daily challenges of this disease and help more than 7,500 people in Oregon and SW Washington live more active, healthy and productive lives.”
Since its founding in 1946, the National MS Society has been the leader in the fight against MS. We support more MS research, offer more services for people with MS, provide more professional educational programs, and further more advocacy efforts than any other MS organization in the world. The Oregon Chapter serves over 7,500 individuals with MS in Oregon and SW Washington. We have been dedicated to moving toward a world free of MS since 1963. The Chapter is not supported by State or Federal funds; financial support is supplied primarily through Chapter events and private donors.
