2nd Annual MS Awareness Poker Run is Great Success
The Twin Valley MS Support Group hosted the 2nd Annual MS Awareness Motorcycles, Trikes, Classic Cars and Jeeps Poker Run Saturday, September 30 at the Hillsvile VFW. We had so much fun and enjoyed meeting everyone who came out to participate and show us support! Thank you to IPHI, Tom McGrath’s Motorcycle Law Group, and all the hard working volunteers who came out to help!
I never realized how much fun Poker Runs could be until I attended my first one….which happened to be this Poker Run. Having MS has led people to believe that we have to lay down and give up, but that’s far from the truth. I learned from my very first Poker Run that the people who make up our communities, our families, our friends & co workers actually care. They are here to help those with MS learn that we have so much more to live for in life and they are all here to support us. The feeling they give to us…to me…it’s worth more than all the gold in this world.
We would like to give a very special Thank You to the Institute for the Public Health and Innovation (IPHI) for their sponsorship. In 2022, IPHI expanded its focus to include support for people living with multiple sclerosis (MS) and medical providers in rural areas. This 3-year project funded by the Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation improves access to diagnostic and support resources for rural populations with multiple sclerosis. Learn more about them here.
