Off the field, the Chief Sealth International High School football team is looking for a win right now – in the fight against multiple sclerosis. From head coach Luther Carr:
Chief Sealth International Football is again participating in WALK MS this year on April 13, 2014. Please donate to MS (Multiple Sclerosis) society on behalf of CSI SEAHAWKS FOOTBALL. Last year we raised more than $1,300 dollars for MS. Our goal this year, $2,500.00!!!
This annual walk is a community-service event organized throughout the country to increase awareness and fundraise for the research into Multiple Sclerosis. Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). This condition affects millions worldwide. Some of the symptoms of those with this condition experience periods of numbness, loss of sensitivity, muscle spasms, loss of speech, fatigue, and blindness. Episodes can occur without warning and without any inciting factors lasting days, weeks or months. I personally decided to get involved because a friend lost his sight in one eye as a result of MS. Early and ongoing treatment with an FDA-approved therapy can make a difference for many people with Multiple Sclerosis. To learn more about MS, go to nationalmssociety.org To learn more about WALK MS Seattle 2014, go to nationalmssociety.org/Chapters/WAS.
Walk MS Seattle 2014 is a great opportunity for Chief Sealth High School football players. They are fundraising for a worldwide condition that affects millions, and has no cure. They are also learning the act of service! As an added benefit, each player will also earn community service credit hours needed to graduate from Seattle Public Schools.
If you would like to donate to MS Society (no donation too large or too small) on behalf of CSI Seahawks Football, please go to http://main.nationalmssociety.org/site/TR?pg=entry&fr_id=22696.
