Race to Erase MS is dedicated to the treatment and ultimate cure of Multiple Sclerosis.
Funding research is the core focus of the foundation and all funds raised support their Center Without Walls program, a selected network of the nation’s top MS research centers. This nationwide collaboration of physicians and scientists are on the cutting-edge of innovative research programs, working as a team on therapeutic approaches to eradicate MS. In addition to combating MS through research in a clinical environment, they also hope to increase awareness by educating the public about this mystifying disease.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a disease no one wants to live with. But for those who do live with it, Race to Erase MS is working to make strides to treat those patients and ensure that future generations don’t have to worry about MS. They have been raising money for MS since 1999 and since then, have made more than 37 million dollars in contributions. The money has been used to fund research grants, create program activities, and assist with treatments
Their Center Without Walls program (CWW) is focused on communication and creates a hub for a group of doctors to work together and develop new treatments for MS. These doctors combine their efforts to understand the cause of MS and advance the treatment options. They use advanced technology and research to accomplish feats that would otherwise not be possible by themselves. Currently, the CWW includes programs from Cedars-Sinai, UC San Fransico, Harvard, Yale, USC, Johns Hopkins, and Oregon Health Sciences University.
