Fundraising is the most important part of your participation in Climb to the Top. Our fundraising goal for 2014 Climb to the Top is $1 million and we know we can reach it with your help! Thank you for your hard work and dedication.

Climb to the Top may be over, but your fundraising efforts are not. Together we have raised over $800,000 and we are well on our way to reaching our goal of $1 million! The fundraising and ranking deadline is April 4, so share your experience and tell people that it’s not too late to make a donation!

Research:
Now: An MS Research Revolution
Funds raised through Climb to the Top will go toward our new NOW initiative to fund more cutting-edge research than ever before. The National MS Society has declared that NOW is the time to take action and that when it comes to a world free of MS, enough is not enough. Only all is enough! We are committed to raising $250 million for research to STOP all disease activity, RESTORE function that has been lost and END MS forever. By 2015, 25% of our revenue will fund MS research to ensure that all promising research paths are pursued.

With your participation and support in Climb to the Top, we can make a bold commitment to do more NOW.
