Why are you participating in WalkMS Milwaukee 2017?  

Truckload’s Donna Schneider ( 18 years at WIS ) and her daughter Kim Bero ( x Years)

Kim and I are walking in honor of my late husband Jim who was diagnosed with MS in 1987.” Donna Schneider

“My children will also be walking in honor of their grandfather.  MS not only affects the patient, it also effects the family of the patient.  When the patient goes from being outgoing and the life of the party to not wanting to go anywhere because they don’t walk as well as they used to, it’s hard on that person’s family too.  Further on down the line, when that same patient is now in a wheelchair and has to rely on the spouse or child to drive to doctor’s appointments, etc. it has a big effect on the family.

 My kids, mother, brothers, sister-in-laws, and other family members are walking in honor of not only our father Jim, but also for the families of the MS patients.  May they stay strong”     Kim Bero

Who walked with us: WIS LOGISTICS,  MAINFREIGHT  MKE & SAFER MILE  co-workers, their families, friends and our customers.

About MS:  When you make a donation, you are changing the world for people affected by MS. Symptoms of MS 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 leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million worldwide, and there is not yet a cure. Every dollar raised matters to those affected by MS. Thank you for your support.   Learn more at walkMS.org
