To The Daily Sun,
On behalf of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Greater New England Chapter, I would like to thank the following local businesses for their generous support of the Laconia MS Walk 2014: Annie's Cafe & Catering, Laconia; Aroma Joe's, Laconia; Coca Cola Bottling, Belmont; Country Kitchen, Belmont; Hannaford's Supermarket, Gilford; Laconia Ice Company, Laconia; Michaud Distributors, Laconia; Sal's Pizza, Belmont; The 99, Tilton; and The Village Bakery, Laconia.
These businesses provided food and beverage items for all participants in the Laconia MS Walk 2014.
We would also like to thank Bank of New Hampshire for hosting the "rest stop" for this event.
The Laconia MS Walk 2014 hosted 160 walkers and has raised over $20,000. Thank you to all of you who walked and/or donated to this event.
Funds from this event will support research into the cause and cure of MS. The money raised will also fund community-based education, support and advocacy within Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont. The NMSS Greater New England Chapter responds to the needs of the nearly 19,000 individuals and their families who are confronted every day by the many challenges of living with multiple sclerosis, empowering them with the resources to maintain independence and to live their lives as fully as possible.
Thank you for joining the movement to create a world free of MS. We appreciate all of the help that these local businesses have provided.
