Did you know that an estimated 400,000 people in the United States have Multiple Sclerosis (MS), including nearly 200 new cases which are diagnosed each week? One family that is near and dear to many of us at Cedar Haven has been in the fight against MS for 23 years. Judy Chilcoate’s daughter, Robin, was diagnosed with MS 23 years ago. Judy’s 96-year-old mother lives at Cedar Haven and Judy has been an avid volunteer at Cedar Haven for the past 9 years. “We have a wonderful staff at Cedar Haven. I volunteer because I love to spend time with the residents– it is a joy,” shared Judy.
Judy also dedicates some of her volunteer efforts to participating in the Walk MS: Hershey with “Team Robin.” The Walk is a great way to support those living with MS in our community and to help raise money for MS research.
This year’s walk will take place in Hershey on April 23, 2017 at Milton Hershey School. The site opens for registration at 12pm and the walk begins at 1pm. While it is FREE to participate in the walk, there is an opportunity to make donations for MS research.
Please join us in thanking Judy for her dedication to volunteering at Cedar Haven and also for her involvement with this worthy cause.
If you are interested in participating in the MS walk or making a donation, you can email Judy at email@example.com or view the Team Robin page on the Walk MS: Hershey website.
