Practice MD James Campbell, and PA-C Michelle Roy head to Cape Cod as Part of team Minion Milers to help raise funds and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis research.
Dermatology & Skin Health will be well represented when they send two of their own down to Cape Cod from September 11-13 to participate in the Challenge Walk MS event. The overall goal of the event is to raise $1,000,000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Practice MD James Campbell and PA-C Michelle Roy are part of team Minion Milers who are hoping to raise $20,000 in support of the initiative.
Challenge Walk MS is a 50-mile trek, which takes place over the span of the three days. As an added a degree of difficulty, Roy will be running the entire course in one day before joining her team for the walk on day two. Both participants have family members suffering from the disease. For Campbell, he’s walking with his sister in mind, while Roy walks in support of her mother.
“Multiple sclerosis is a tough disease on so many levels,” said Roy. “With all of the efforts that I am currently a part of and have been a part of in the past – Make Big Change, Melanoma Foundation of New England, etc. – this is different. This is for my mom.”
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling, disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. MS and the challenges of living with its unpredictable symptoms, which range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis, affect millions of people. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.
