The National MS Society is a collective of passionate individuals who want to do something about MS now—to move together toward a world free of multiple sclerosis. MS stops people from moving. We exist to make sure it doesn’t.
We help each person address the challenges of living with MS through our 50-state network of chapters. The Society helps people affected by MS by funding cutting-edge research, driving change through advocacy, facilitating professional education, and providing programs and services that help people with MS and their families move their lives forward.
We are moving research forward by relentlessly pursuing prevention, treatment and cure.
We are moving to reach out and respond to individuals, families and communities living with multiple sclerosis.
We are moving politicians and legislation to champion the needs of people with MS through activism, advocacy and influence.
We are moving to mobilize the millions of people who want to do something about MS now.
In 2009, Shoot For A Cure and Teamsters Joint Council 7 partnered up to launch the very successful “MS Shoot Out” annual charity sporting clays shoot fundraiser in Northern CA. To date, this event has raised just over $230,000 for MS research. Janine Vanier, Executive Assistant, IBT Local 853, is our Chairperson and MS champion who has battled this terrible disease for over 24 years. In November 2013 we will be hosting our 5th annual event, a special “Turkey Shoot” (turkeys and hams are given to the winners and festive turkey hats will be worn by all), followed by a turkey dinner and a raffle.
