On April 6th, 2008, the Walk MS event was held at the Pasadena Rose Bowl in southern California. Nahleen Blake, co-captain of the National MS Society’s TeamMS who has MS herself, walked to raise money to help find a cure for multiple sclerosis. She brought some cameras to follow her on the 5K walk.
Her team helped raise nearly $17,000 for the National MS Society. The event itself raised over $1.3 million.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society funds more MS research than any other private organization. In addition to supporting studies which hope to reveal the cause and course of the disease, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society also provides much needed education, programs, and services to everyone who is affected by MS – including the diagnosed, their friends and families, and the healthcare professionals who work with them.
Golly gee gosh, I sure hope so. If so, click on that clickable part right there. The CoreyBlake.com Mailing List will be a good place to get announcements, show information, and other important stuff like that. For now, you can expect a new message once a month or less. If you don’t visit the site every day or so (although you should!) and would rather not get notified of every blog posting, this is the way to go. You’ll be kept up to date on all of the good stuff without getting inundated with messages.
I’ve also set up new subscription options for the blog thanks to Feedburner.com. You can be notified of new posts either through your RSS reader of choice or through email.
And for those reading this through Facebook, I realize that videos and pictures don’t usually show up for you, which probably results in something about as coherent as hearing a quarter of a conversation. Until some kind of remedy is discovered by the Internet Gods, you’re just going to have to click on the “View original post” link at the bottom to make any sense of it all. Sorry. (I also realize that Facebook frequently turns punctuation into cartoon swearing. Lame, I know.)
YouTube Description: This Star Trek: The Next Generation parody was created by using computer imaging based on the actors’ faces. Fun Little Movies founder Frank Chindamo created this pilot for mobile phones. Face2Face provided the CGI and interpreted the actors’ facial expressions. Corey Blake played the Data character.
