The Beat Dance Tour and the National MS Society, along with event co-chairs Courtney Galiano and Philip Byron bring together artists, dancers and people who want to do something about MS now for the 1st annual The Beat MS Dance Walk.
A Note from Courtney:
As some of you may know, I have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. It was a lot to process, there are good days and bad days but despite any of those things, I feel it is my duty to get involved, raise awareness and find a cure for this debilitating disease and I will use the platform I have been given to do just that. We are so excited to team up with the MS Society, an incredible organization. MS may stop people from moving but this movement works there hardest to prevent that. A portion of every registration will go to the MS Society. WITH YOUR HELP I KNOW WE REALLY CAN BEAT MS!
