Savannah, GA (PRWEB) May 17, 2016
Meridth Lamas, of State Farm, is proud to announce she recently volunteered at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Walk MS: Savannah 2016 in Daffin Park, helping with registration/check-in, face painting and distribution of T-shirts for the walkers. “This was a wonderful event that helped raise money for MS education, awareness and research,” said Lamas. “MS research is helping to create disease-modifying drugs to reduce progression and is moving towards finding a cure.”
MS is a debilitating disease, resulting in a myriad of symptoms. It is often hard to diagnose, and the cause of the disease is unknown. Walk MS: Savannah 2016 enabled participants to team up with friends, loved ones and co-workers to change the world for everyone affected by this disease. MS: Savannah raises over $61,000 every year, which supports programs and services that help people affected by MS live their best lives.
“Dr. Virginia Morrison started a MS support group in Savannah for her daughter, Calaundra Hazzard, who unfortunately succumbed as a result of complications from the disease. However, I was moved by her mother’s continuation to rally for the cause, facilitate support meetings and keep others abreast on all new research and developments, which inspired me to volunteer for Walk MS,” said Lamas. “Every step and every dollar raised can help end MS forever.”
