Charity of the Month for September 2012 – National Multiple Sclerosis Society
EatSmart fans will select each Charity of the Month in 2012. Fans will submit short stories about the charity’s mission and why it’s meaningful to them. We began our Charity of the Month donations in 2011. For September 2012, loyal EatSmart Fan, Jamie Brabston selected the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, as she will be participating in Bike MS NYC. We will be donating 50 cents for every new Facebook LIKE during the month of September. (So spread the word!) Read why Jamie picked the National MS Society: I am supporting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society by joining the fight against MS. Each year, millions of people are affected by MS, and the National MS Society is one of their biggest resources. I am participating in this year's Bike MS NYC, where I will be biking 100 miles on October 21st throughout NYC and the surrounding area. Bike MS has raised millions of dollars for the MS Society through its different races throughout the country. I compete in several races every year, but I have yet to do one for charity. I’m excited that I will be able to make a difference in people’s lives by doing something I love. Bike MS NYC is the perfect race for me to start competing for a cause. Although I don’t personally know anyone who has been a victim to MS, I'm excited to be contributing to this organization. Click HERE to access my personal fund raising page. About Jamie: Jamie Brabston, a recent graduate of Stevens Institute of Technology, has been a runner for the last 10 years but has recently picked up triathlons and cycling. When shes not training, she spends all her time with her new puppy, Minnie. Bike MS, on October 21st, will be her second century ride but her first race for charity!
