Healthline partnered with the 24th Annual Race to Erase MS Gala benefiting Race to Erase MS and its Center without Walls program, which continues to raise funds in order to provide treatment and ultimately find a cure for MS. For the first time in the event’s history, a representative from the MS community interviewed attendees on the red carpet! Shortly after she was diagnosed Arnetta Hollis, of McKinney Texas, discovered Healthline’s MS Buddy App, which matches MS patients with others who have similar circumstances. Arnetta asked celebrities about their health tips while the Healthline video team captures these interviews.
Guests participated in a silent auction before enjoying the gala dinner where actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler was honored with the2017 Medal of Hope Award.
Race to Erase MS is dedicated to the treatment and ultimate cure for MS. Funding research is the core focus of the foundation and significant strides have been made to find the cause and cure of this debilitating disease. At the event’s inception 24 years ago, the absence of medications and therapies encouraged its involvement; the Race has been instrumental in funding many pilot studies that have contributed to drugs now on the market and other very important therapies that are improving the lives of people suffering from MS.
