Town of Mocksville Declares March 2-8, 2015 Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Week

Mocksville, North Carolina – Mayor F.W. Slate has issued a proclamation declaring March 2-8, 2015 Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Week in Mocksville.

“We encourage anyone in our community who has multiple sclerosis, or has a family member with MS, to learn more about the resources, programs, information and support available through the National MS Society and other agencies,” said Mayor Slate.  “Multiple sclerosis affects more than 13,000 people throughout North Carolina, and the Town of Mocksville encourages all citizens to contribute to efforts to find a cure for this debilitating disease.”

“We are grateful Mocksville has chosen to support our efforts to create a world free of MS,” said Kristina Fresnel McGraw, Chapter President of the Greater Carolinas Chapter of the National MS Society.  “MS is the number one disabling disease among young adults, striking them in the prime of their life.  The National MS Society furthers cutting-edge research and provides vital programs and services for those living with MS in your community.”

The Greater Carolinas Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is asking everyone to JOIN THE MOVEMENT to end MS now.  Mocksville residents can show their commitment to the MS movement with simple actions throughout the week, including:

  • Signing up to volunteer or participate at an upcoming chapter event
  • Forming a Walk MS team at www.walkMS.org
  • Emailing a legislator about an issue important to people with MS
  • Telling five people about MS Awareness Week
  • Supporting the Society – every donation moves us closer to a world free of MS
