When the firefighters of Central County Fire & Rescue (CCFR) learned that one of their own had been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) they realized that many of them didn’t know enough about this life changing disease, and they wanted to help.  “We knew we needed to do something to help spread awareness, and help find a cure,” explains CCFR Captain Doug Raines. 

The members of Central County Community Outreach are bringing the community together for a Walk-A-Thon to benefit The Gateway Area Chapter of the National MS Society. For 24 hours, 24 teams of four people each will each spend 55 minutes walking on a set of treadmills in front of CCFR Station #1 to help increase awareness about MS, and to help raise money to find a cure. Captain Doug Raines, who is spearheading the effort, will walk for the entire 24-hours.  

Donations will be used to help find the cause, treatment, and ultimately the cure of MS. They will also help provide education, information, direct financial support, and scholarships to individuals and families living with MS. There is no cure for MS, a chronic disease that impacts the central nervous system – the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. It can affect the way you see, move, and even the way you think.
