What is the MS Monster Stomp?
The MS Monster Stomp is a charity race for all ages to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The proceeds of the event assist persons with MS and their families with medical equipment, in-home services, respite for care-givers, education, self help groups and funding for research to help find the cause and cure for MS. Family, friends and neighbors of many individuals in Lawrence and the surrounding counties are affected by MS. The MS Monster Stomp is an effort to raise awareness about the disease and its impact on those close to home.
What is MS?
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that randomly attaches the central nervous system. Symptoms may be mild such as numbness or tingling in the limbs or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. MS is a "prime of life" disease, as most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 40. The unpredictable physical and emotional effects are lifelong. There are over one million people with MS in the United States alone, and someone is diagnosed with MS virtually every hour. Twice as many women are affected as men.
