    2010 Hope Award recipient for philanthropic service and community leadership by the

    National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

    The funds raised by these events are essential to the 400,000 Americans living with multiple sclerosis, a disease of the central nervous system with no known cause or cure. In addition to supporting MS research at centers such as the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Jefferson University Hospital and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, the Society provides a wide range of services that local people living with MS depend on.
