Flash Freeze, Capitol Hill and the Color Orange

What are you doing for MS Awareness Month?

There is a lot happening this month as we bring awareness about life with multiple sclerosis, the complexities of the disease and the hope for a better future via a cure. Folks are doing all kinds of cool things all over the country to elevate awareness. Here are some things that caught my attention.

Orange, orange, orange. Orange is the color of MS and lots of folks will be making flashy statements with their wardrobe, especially next week during MS Awareness Week (March 12-March 18). This is a color that is not readily available in my closet so I may opt to shop for an orange scarf!

Flash Freeze. This is so cool. Organized by our pals in NYC, a flash freeze demonstration will hit the streets of Manhattan on March 13. The team will focus on how MS stops people from moving hence the freeze. Details can be found here: Flash Freeze in NYC!

Feeling Political? Check out the happenings at the 21st Annual National MS Society Public Policy Conference in Washington, D.C. Our friend Lisa Emrich is live on Capitol Hill reporting on the event. Check out her updates here:

Edible Support. I even came across this great team raising money to benefit the MS Society through sales of delicious cookies. Edible Arrangements in New England is donating a portion of their sales from every Orange Blossom arrangement to the MS Society. And, they deliver! Orange Blossom

And, there’s more. A lot more. I couldn’t possibly list them all.
  • The team over at The Multiple Sclerosis Associate of America (MSAA) put together a great list of ways to show support: MSAA
  • The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation (MSF) is talking about how Allsup promotes awareness about folks living with MS and how to get SSDI benefits. MSF

So, how about you? What’s happening in your neck of the woods?

Be well,
