Team Monterey Bay!

Each year that I coordinate Walk MS in Monterey Bay, I become more and more amazed. Amazed at all the incredible support and efforts of the MS community to raise awareness and funds for Multiple Sclerosis. It is also a day to celebrate hope, love and the people that show up for us each and every day. The event was a success. We have over 354 walkers, 33 team captains, 5 sponsors and over 20 businesses that donated their time or products. Without everyone, this event would not have been the talk of the day. More pictures like the one below to follow!

For questions, comments, or feedback or if you would like to be on the planning meeting for Walk MS 2015, please give me a call or shoot me an email.

With immense gratitude,
