Many of us who work and play at The Sandbar personally know someone who
is affected by Multiple Sclerosis. We have friends and relatives who are diagnosed with
MS, and many friends and relatives who know someone with MS.
The symptoms of MS are different for everyone. You may not be able to walk, you may suddenly have impaired vision, or your memory may fail for no reason. There are 400,000 people living with MS in the United States, and no cure is available- yet.
We've mentioned MS before- bartender Danny has raised lots of funds for MS by riding in the MS150 bike ride for the past three years.
Walk MS is an annual fundraising event sponsored by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The funds support research for a cure, as well as provide programs to address the needs of people living with MS.
The Sandbar has formed a team for this year's Walk MS in Lawrence. The walk is Saturday, April 10, at 9 a.m. And of course it's going to be a blast- we're The Sandbar after all!
Peach has very generously offered for The Sandbar to match every dollar raised, up to $500. Every walker will receive a FREE Sandbar t-shirt. And after the walk, everyone's invited back to The Sandbar for a team party with snacks and drink specials.
So, what are you waiting for? Join our team!
If you aren't interested in walking with us, you can still donate to the cause. Go to our team page and pick one of the team members; you can donate on their personal page. All donations to team members count toward the team goal of $3000.
And, if you don't want to walk and you aren't able to donate- help us out by at least spreading the word and cheering us on at the event!
