NILES

The 2012 Mahoning Valley Walk MS is Saturday at its new location in Scrappers Stadium at 111 Eastwood Mall Blvd., Niles, behind Eastwood Mall.

Check-in begins at 8 a.m. and the walk starts at 9 a.m.

The average Walk MS participant raises $225. The funds go toward local programs to help MS victims and their families and to support 17 research projects in Ohio. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society has invested more than $6.3 million over a three-year period for researchers at Case Western Reserve University, the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and The Ohio State University.

Walk MS is about rallying for a better future for those affected by MS, 20,000 of whom are Ohio residents.

Other Walk MS events are April 28 at the University of Akron, the Massillon Recreation Center, Mentor High School and Price Park in North Canton.

As someone affected with MS your choice of the word "victim" make it sound like we were injured, murdered, beaten, raped or harassed. I don't consider myself as a victim of MS. I consider myself as a fighter to help find a cure for MS.

I find it interesting the article states the funds go towards LOCAL programs. I sit on the board of the LOCAL MS Services agency(No connection to the agency in this article). We get no funding to assist LOCAL programs and we know of no programs LOCALLY they fund!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
