“For the last two weeks I have walked 1/4 of a mile without stopping to rest. I go from my house down the street to the stop sign and back. My grandson goes with me and sits so nice on the seat. We talk about the things we see. Also he cheers me on. He says, ‘Come on Grandma, you can do it!!!’ It does not sound far to some. It's a big deal for me.” ~ Alicia #WeAreStrongerThanMS #BreakthroughMS

Together we will change the world for people affected by MS. #WeAreStrongerThanMS #nationalnonprofitday

Challenge Walk MS is more than a 30-50 mile endurance event. It dares us to move beyond our limits, both as individuals and as a group. Accept the challenge and join a community of spirit and strength. It will be an experience you'll never forget, shared with new friends and old. With each mile you walk and every dollar you raise, you’ll be helping create a world free of MS. Will you join us? ChallengeWalkMS.org #ChallengeWalkMS

When you participate in Walk MS, you are helping create a world free of multiple sclerosis. Together, we become a powerful force. Together, we will end MS forever.

“I kept going today because this two word phrase, although not related, reminded me why I ride. I am riding for a cause. I am riding to raise awareness. I am riding to help find a cure. I am riding for those who cannot ride. I am riding for my friends, family and any stranger that has MS. Forever Forward. Those two words can mean anything, and that meaning can change on a daily basis. Today, those words meant that I couldn't quit on my goal because I have a larger goal.” @b_boden #WednesdayWisdom #BikeMS #DontJustRide #Inspiration #MS #EndMS

"I thanked (my husband) for everything he has done for our family and for shouldering many of my former responsibilities to the children and our home. I apologized for being a burden, especially when my #MS symptoms are triggered. I also shared my disappointment and sadness at not being able to work and putting us in a financial bind. My husband turned the tables on me and asked, 'If I was the one who was sick, wouldn’t you do the same for me?' I was surprised, and I replied that, of course, I would do the same for him. I realized he has already been operating from the foundation on which solid relationships are built. He is honoring our #marriage vows, he trusts that I will be there if he ever needs me, he respects my limitations and he is doing everything he can because of his love for our family." ~Kara, from MSconnection.org blog, "How MS Changed My Marriage": http://ntl.ms/2h98O8P #multiplesclerosis #WeAreStrongerThanMS

Dave Bexfield, diagnosed with #MS in 2006, still enjoys #cycling and other summer activities despite balance, leg weakness and eyesight issues that are exacerbated by exercise and heat. For summer #hiking, Dave switches out his cane for forearm crutches, which give him more balance and stability on uneven surfaces. His wife, Laura, carries a small portable stool, and every 15 minutes, he sits in a shady spot to cool down, sipping ice water from a hydration pack he froze the night before. He also wears a cooling vest and, often, a wide-brimmed hat. Following this regimen allows him to hike for a couple of hours, or two to three miles. Read more for ideas on how to enjoy your favorite summer activities – with a little adaptation: http://ntl.ms/2tljGEr

"So blessed and honored to be 'wheeled' down the aisle by my dad on my wedding day. Dad's had MS for 28 years now. I recollect the things he has taught and exemplified – things I pray he continues to do so for decades to come! Dad shows what it looks like to protect and be there for his family even when he couldn't physically by caring more about us then he does himself. He shows that real men do hard things – and by far the hardest thing for a man to do is ask for help, with a smile on his face. He showed me what kind of man to marry by cherishing my mom."
