About Women Against MS:
Women Against MS (WAMS) is a nationwide education and fundraising program founded in 1999 to support the mission of the National MS Society. The vision of WAMS is to bring together a strong body of women to fight a disease that primarily impacts women and to raise critical funds to support related research, education and programs. The WAMS event has a steering committee of women leaders committed to the MS cause, each making efforts to involve friends and business associates to join them for lunch and make a set minimum charitable donation to help end the devastating effects of MS. Today, some 20 national MS Society chapters are hosting WAMS luncheons across the country that draw between 200 - 700 attendees who come to learn more about multiple sclerosis and make charitable donations to help friends, family members, neighbors and colleagues. The program has already raised over $2.5 million to support the work of the Society. To learn more, visit http://www.nationalmssociety.org/wams.asp
