Funds raised through the Get Connected Luncheon support the Society’s mission to mobilize people and resources to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS. From the moment of diagnosis, throughout life with MS, the goal of the National MS Society is to help individuals with MS living with MS to move their lives forward by providing critical programs and services and funding research to stop the progression of the disease, restore lost function that has been lost, and end MS forever. 

As the largest private funder of MS research, the National MS Society is the leader in pursuing prevention, treatment and a cure. Each of the FDA-approved therapies for MS were developed using findings from basic science research funded by the Society.
