It’s only three weeks until our team, Project ArtHead, will participate in the Historic Hunt to Cure MS-Boston. We will be one of many teams spending the day scouring Boston and Cambridge to find answers to clues all to raise money for The Accelerated Cure Project for Multiple Sclerosis.
We are in the homestretch of our fundraising effort with only 3 weeks to raise $3,178 to reach our ambitious $5,000 goal! So many people have already been so generous in donating to our cause and we are so grateful for their support. Will you help us achieve our goal this year?
Why Do We Make Fools of Ourselves Every Year?
We do it to support our friends and family with MS!
“I was diagnosed with Relapsing Remitting MS in 2006 when I was 41 years old. To say it was a shock would be an understatement, but at least it provided an explanation for a lot of the strange and painful symptoms I had been experiencing. Thankfully my disease course so far has been more remitting than relapsing and I am hopeful that the organizations and individuals supported by the Accelerated Cure Project will find a cure someday soon. “
Where Does Your Money Go?
All donations go to the Accelerated Cure Project for Multiple Sclerosis* which is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to curing MS by determining its causes.
Their main effort is the creation of a large-scale, multidisciplinary MS Repository of blood samples and data from people with MS and matched controls. They make these samples available to researchers investigating the causes of MS and other demyelinating diseases. In exchange for access to the repository, researchers agree to return the data they generate from the samples so that results from disparate experiments can be combined.
* The Accelerated Cure Project is recognized as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization by the IRS.
