As the National MS Society continues to bring much needed awareness and education about Multiple Sclerosis, they thanked their leaders for being a part of the movement to create a world free of MS.
The program got underway promptly at 5:00pm, with a vendor expo, photo ops, music and cocktails before the program began at 6:00pm. This hour was spent meeting new captains or re-Aquaintining their selves with those they may not have seen and playing catch up. Yet, the cause, cure and movement still on the tongues and in the conversations of many. As the program began to acknowledge teams and team captains for their leadership and successful effort in this worthy fundraising cause, dinner was served.
