MS Walk....
Sunday, May 4th my client Gina, (who will be competing in figure May 3rd), will be walking in the Walk MS 2008, which benefits the Greater Illinois Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Approximately 400,000 people nationwide, including 20,000 here in Illinois, live with the devastating effects of this chronic, progressive, and often disabling disease of the central nervous system.
With so many families affected by multiple sclerosis, I am reaching out to you in the hopes that you will be able to help me achieve my fundraising goals - or that I might even encourage you to participate in this exciting annual event! I am looking for sponsorship of any amount for the walk. It is people like you--friends and family and associates who support my fundraising goals and the goals of the more than 16,000 people who will be walking with her-- that are key to making the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s ultimate mission of finding a cure possible, and, in the meantime, providing the crucial services to those living with multiple sclerosis!

It’s faster and easier than ever to support this great cause—you can make your donation on line by clicking Support and following the prompts. If you would prefer, you can also send your tax-deductible contribution to Gina or directly to the Greater Illinois Chapter. More information about the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Greater Illinois Chapter and its programs can be found at

Whatever you can give will help, because every bit counts. Gina would greatly appreciate your support and I will keep you posted on her progress. If you are able to contribute, please make an online pledge by the Walk MS event date-- Sunday, May 4,-- or mail a check on my behalf before the event date to the address below (and be sure to make checks payable to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and write my name in the check’s memo section).
Thank you for your support

Together we can lead the fight against multiple sclerosis!
