ABOUT RACE TO ERASE:
“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 our 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, we hope to increase awareness by educating the public about this mystifying disease.
Since 1999, the Race to Erase MS has raised $32,828,789 in contributions. We have funded MS research grants and programs totaling $21,968,498. Our core focus is to assist in the treatment and ultimate cure of MS. 71% percent of all Race to Erase MS spending since 1999 has been on program activities, funding cutting edge research through our Center Without Walls, which is greater than the 65% recommended by the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance.”
