In Support of My Mom


On April 20, 2009, I will join 20,000 runners for the historic Boston Marathon. I will run 26.2 miles to raise money for the National MS Society. This effort has a personal meaning to me because my mother was diagnosed with MS over a decade ago and has enjoyed a normal quality of life due to medicines and treatments which are a result of efforts made in part by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. This year’s goal is to raise $30,000 and I want to do my part to reach that goal. To make a donation, you can simply visit my team’s webpage and click on my name (Jason Magurno) to make a donation. The website address is:   or mail a check (made payable to "Run MS NYC") to: National MS Society-NYC Chapter
Attn: Run MS
733 Third Avenue, 3rd Floor
New York, NY 10017 Please make sure to put my name and the Boston Marathon in the memo section of your check.
The National MS Society believes that moving is not just something you can or can’t do but, rather, is who you are. Run to Stop MS raises funds for critical research, as well as comprehensive programs and services for people with MS, moving closer toward a world free of MS. When you donate, you become a part of the powerful movement that is doing something about MS Now. Many thanks in advance for your generous support.

My mother was diagnosed with MS when I was in junior high (ages and ages ago). I'd love to talk to about what types of things have helped your mom, and how you cope as well. Please feel free to email me if you don't mind sharing info.<br />

Best wishes and good luck in the race!
