The Wilmington University women’s soccer team scored one of its biggest goals of the 2013-14 season this past weekend, raising more than $4,000 for the Delaware Chapter Walk MS: Wilmington Riverfront on Saturday, April 12.

Starting with a goal of $3,000, the Wildcats put together a package of $4,365 to bring to the MS Walk to help people in need in the Delaware region. Among all the teams participating to raise money, the Wilmington Women’s Soccer team raised the fifth most amount for the Delaware Chapter Walk MS: Wilmington Riverfront.

According the Walk MS website, www.walkms.org, 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. Millions of people are affected by MS and the challenges of living with its unpredictable symptoms, which 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.

Walk MS connects people living with MS and those who care about them. It is an experience unlike any other - a day to come together, to celebrate the progress we've made and to show the power of our connections.

When you participate in Walk MS, the funds you raise give hope to the more than 1,550 people living with MS in our community. The dollars raised support life-changing programs and cutting-edge research.

The Wildcats, along with 14 other teams and countless individuals participating in the walk, covered a 2.75 mile long loop along the Delaware Riverfront, starting and finishing at Frawley Stadium.
