MSP Walks For MS --  Nearly 300 students and community members came out on Mother’s Day, May 10, for the Middle School of Plainville’s Walk for MS in Memory of the Petit Family. Kim Quealy, (left) walk MSP Walks For MSchairperson, and Sue Bradley, (right) president of the Parent Teacher Club, present the funds raised to Lisa Gerrol, president and chief professional officer with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Connecticut Chapter. The $4,622.60 raised at the event will go toward the Hayley's Hope and Michaela's Miracle MS Memorial Fund. More than 6,000 Connecticut residents live with multiple sclerosis, a chronic and often disabling disease of the central nervous system. There currently is no cure. Symptoms can include, among other things, numbness in the limbs, difficulties with vision and speech, stiffness and, in some more severe cases, total paralysis. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot be predicted.
