The first ever Ohio Walk-Run-Roll for the TMA was held on May 21, 2016. About 70 brave souls from our community came together on a very soggy Saturday morning from across the state of Ohio and from Kentucky. Most of the morning was spent under the shelter of the Coffman Pavilion in Dublin eating breakfast and visiting. For many of the participants, it was a first opportunity to meet another person who had one of the rare neuro-immune disorders. It was a great time for people to share their experiences. And we did have a walk and roll in the rain, led by some of the children. There were many family members and friends who attended the event, and it was great to experience all of the support people were receiving from their loved ones. We raised over $12,000 from the event.
A special thank you to Barbara Ferguson and Mark McCloskey for all of their hard work in planning and organizing the event. The walk wouldn’t have been possible without them. We also want to thank our wonderful sponsors!
We are in the process of planning next year’s event which will be held on May 13th, 2017 at Coffman Pavilion in Dublin, Ohio.
