The participants will spend a morning going to work, running errands and doing everything they would normally do — from a wheelchair.

MS is a chronic, and often disabling disease that attacks a person’s nervous system. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of the disease cannot be predicted; symptoms may range from numbness to paralysis and blindness.
