The countdown for Snow Ball Weekend has begun!  Four more days until the excitement begins at the Holiday Inn Tanglewood Roanoke.  Be sure to join us March 2nd, 3rd and 4th as we kick off MS Awareness Month with dinners, education, camaraderie, games and much more.  The weekend starts on Friday evening at 6pm with a Mallinckrodt dinner and then we will move into the Elephant Walk to test our Karaoke skills.  

Start your day on Saturday at 9:30am in our individual meet and greets, where you will get to know people like you, and then move into discussions until about 12:30pm.  Dr. Burch will lead our Care Givers/Care Partners group, and the young adults/teens group, friends and family, and those with MS will all have their own meeting spaces with facilitators to lead their discussions.  This will be a great time to think about what you want those you interact with to know about how MS affects you and those you love as we enter into MS Awareness Month.

We will leave our individual sessions and move downstairs to freer time to peruse vendor tables, use the game room, take advantage of massages, go to chair yoga or chair Pilates or get ready for the fashion show if you are a model.  You will be able to make appointments at the registration desk for massages with Crystal's Healing Hands for $5 fifteen minute massages that will be available between 1:00-3:30 on Saturday.  Make sure to take advantage of the expertise of these massage therapists with a table or chair massage.  

A game room will be open all day Saturday and Sunday morning for everyone, helping families with children needing activities to keep their kids busy and happy. A wide variety of vendors will be displaying their products and services, and this may be the most exciting array we have had yet. There will also be a quiet room available all day Saturday for anyone needing to rest and get some solitude.  We will strut our stuff in a Fashion Show, 3:45pm on Saturday, followed by local politicians presenting proclamations about MS Awareness Month and then move into our evening Biogen dinner program.

The Catawba Boys are back in town to wow us with their eclectic music once again and have promised to continue playing as long as we are alive and up dancing!  Sunday morning Mary Ann Walker is bringing us her Sound Meditation with Harps program before we head to the Genzyme Brunch and conclude our event by noon.
