Cincinnati, Ohio (PressExposure) November 06, 2009 -- This holiday season you can impact the lives of more than 6,000 people in the Ohio Valley area by donating your used vehicle. A new program, Autos-4-MS, encourages individuals or businesses to donate their old vehicles to the National MS Society, in turn, helping fund important programs for those living with multiple sclerosis in our area.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from each vehicle benefit the National MS Society and help fund programs for clients living with multiple sclerosis. Programs offered include: Journey Club Kids Camp, Couples Programs, general education and physical health, such as aquatics and yoga. Donating your vehicle will impact the lives of not only those living with MS, but their families as well.
The spirit of giving is all around us during the holiday season. Join the movement to create a world free of MS by donating your vehicle today. To do so, contact the Ohio Valley Chapter or visit http://www.autos4ms.org.
About Multiple Sclerosis Multiple sclerosis interrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body and it stops people from moving. Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with MS, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. 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. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with more than twice as many women as men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 400,000 people in the U.S. and 2.5 million worldwide.
