Charleen H - Charleen's Dream Team - Philadelphia, PA

This year I will be walking in the MS Challenge Walk. I hope to walk 30 miles. It is the 10 year anniversary of our walk, I have volunteered, Crewed, and walked this walk. Two years ago, I walked 22.5 miles, last year only 7.5 miles, this year I hope to go the entire 30 miles. I am walking for folks like me that have Multiple Sclerosis. I am looking for the cure. In 2002 I was diagnosed with MS, I have volunteered for many different events, I have talked to different experts, and I have become a champion to a team of riders called Team Mars for the MS 150. I was a member of the MS leadership class of 2008, I stood with Joe Frick while he received the Hope Award from the NMSS in 2010, and I have done every thing possible up to this point to raise funds to help fund research to find a cure for this disease. My team will be walking 30 miles the weekend of October 13th and 14th, looking for that cure. I will be walking with them, God willing, and together we will be closer to finding the answer.
