Over 1,550 Delawareans are living with multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, which interrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and the body. Throughout MS Awareness Week, March 12-18, people all over Delaware and the country came together to make connections and spread the word about MS, along with the need to find a cure.

Monday, March 12th, volunteers throughout Wilmington helped to kick-off MS Awareness Week by participating in public movement events to symbolize that MS stops people from moving. On Wednesday March 14th, MS advocates met with state legislators and Governor Markell for MS Awareness Week proclamations. On Friday, March 16th, Ernest and Scott Taproom hosted a “Fill the Need” happy hour in which volunteer donated health and wellness items to be donated to people living with MS in long-term care facilities. In addition, throughout the week, the Community Services Parking Garage building and the Grand Opera House changed their lights to orange to honor the week. There were also a variety of other open houses and team fundraisers throughout the state run by volunteers, team captains, and support group leaders.
