AAWCC Sponsors MS Walk "Traveling Wall"


Visit the MS Walk’s Traveling Wall this week in the Marketplace Dining area if you missed it last week when it was in the Campus Center Atrium. Sponsored by the American Association of Women in Community Colleges MCC chapter, the MCC MS Walk Team has been receiving positive feedback from the traveling wall. And, planning is underway to take the traveling wall to other MCC locations.

The wall highlights nine people in the Rochester area with Multiple Sclerosis. It was created in memory of Marlene Utz who recently passed away. Also on the board is a timeline of Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis and treatment, from the first findings of MS to the current medicines. You will also learn how donated funds are used, see a display of the shoes that have been sold and get information on how to sign up for this year’s walk.

Please stop by to see the wall and help spread awareness!  While you’re there don’t hesitate to fill out “How has MS affected you?”

For information on how to join the walk or donate contact Courtney Belluccio at <"mailto:cbelluccio@monroecc.edu"> or Yolanda Johnson at <"mailto:yjohnson@monroecc.edu">
