    Thank you to Everyone who participated in this year's NYC MDS Awareness Walk! We will continue to accept donations up until 30 days after the event (Oct. 12th), so if you'd like to support the MDS Foundation or any of our fundraisers you still have time to do so!
    Inspired by the thousands impacted by MDS each year, the FIRST New York MDS Awareness 5K Run/Walk will still strive to drive awareness of this devastating disease, create connections and build a community for patients, families, and caregivers.

    The NY MDS Awareness walk will be livestreamed, but teams are still encouraged to get together outdoors, while maintaining social distancing guidelines. We want you to walk anywhere and in any way that feels safe. Whether you’re outside with a team or doing the walk on your treadmill, be sure to submit photos that will be showcased during the event wearing the MDS-branded items that we will ship to your home upon registration.
