CLARK, NJ – When Walk MS steps off at Oak Ridge Park on Saturday morning, it will be behind this year’s “Most Inspirational Walker for 2017,” Kristin Campiglia. Campiglia will cut the ribbon to start the walk, as the team she spearheads marks a milestone fifth year supporting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Walk MS has become a time to celebrate Anthony Campiglia, Kristin's husband who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis five years ago.

“Life with MS comes with many challenges,” Kristin Campiglia explained.  “Including the most amazing days to the worst of the worst days, and Anthony has had his share of both.”

Over 40 family and friends walk with Team Campiglia each year and the team continues to grow.

“2017 may be the biggest year yet,” she said. “The team is on track to reach $20,000 in funds raised for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. What many don’t realize is that the money is put to amazing research projects. In fact, the MS Society partially funded the research for the clinical trial that Anthony is currently involved in.”

Multiple Sclerosis is a progressive disease that attacks the body's central nervous system. It damages the protective coating around the nerves which in turn reduces communication between the nerves and the brain. Symptoms and severity vary widely and the disease is often difficult to diagnose.  There is no known cure.

The National MS Society offers resources to families battling the disease, and many families utilize life changing services.

“We are amazed at the outpouring of support from the town of Clark,” Kristin Campiglia said. “This year, Jay Katz and Clark Soccer decided to make WALK MS the fundraiser for the season. He spoke to us personally about knowing of the clinical trial we are participating in and saying he felt he wanted to do something to support MS.  Anthony and I were genuinely moved to tears. You see, we believe that every dollar truly counts and that we can FUND the cure for MS.”

The Clark MS Walk, one of many held throughout the country, will take place in Oak Ridge Park, 136 Oak Ridge Road on Saturday, April 29. The site opens at 9 a.m. and the walk kicks off at 10 a.m.
