Zoltun Design proudly sponsors one of our own, Marci Scott, and her team “The Galloping Gietelbugs” in their Walk for MS on Sunday, April 10, 2011.
Multiple sclerosis, a disease of the central nervous system, is one of the most common neurological disorders diagnosed in young adults. Its causes are not yet fully understood and researchers continue to look for answers.
“We’ve formed our team for the Walk MS because the National Multiple Sclerosis Society funds more MS research than any other private organization,” says Marci. (The name “Gietelbug” comes from Marci’s nickname as a child… and it just stuck! Her husband, Ed, came up with the whole team name.)
In addition to creating and paying for the Galloping Gietelbugs’ t-shirts, Zoltun also donated $200.00 to the cause. Not including this donation, Marci’s team has already raised over $3,400.00 toward a cure for MS!
“In addition to supporting studies which hope to reveal the cause and course of the disease,” she says, “the National Multiple Sclerosis Society also provides much needed education, programs, and services to everyone who is affected by MS – including the diagnosed, their friends and families, and the healthcare professionals who work with them.”
“The Walk MS event is a simple but powerful way to join the movement. It’s a place to be together with others in the community that care bout MS. It’s a way to support research and help people with MS move their lives forward.” (walkpax.nationalmssociety.org)
