EDITORIAL: Fall River man with Multiple Sclerosis running marathons to help others



On a day many runners had to quit as it was cold and wet with many downpours, Dennis Medeiros, who has MS, kept pushing and didn’t give up until he finished the Boston Marathon for his charity. Now he is about to embark on a new challenge with his best friend Michael Hobbs.

“As many of you know, I was diagnosed almost 15 years ago with Multiple Sclerosis. After a rocky start, things have been sort of stable for the past 7 years or so. Unfortunately, many people living with MS are not in the same situations. After running the Boston Marathon last year for the MS Society, I have joined the Finish MS team this year to again raise funds for the MS Society by running the Chicago Marathon. The money raised goes toward research and programs for people living with MS and hopefully one day, leading to a cure. I humbly ask you for your support in this journey to finally FINISH MS!!”

“Our goal—a world free of MS.”

“I’ve signed up to bring together a community of passionate people to connect and raise funds to change the world for everyone affected by multiple sclerosis.”

“Please support me today.”

“I’ve set an ambitious goal because with your support, I know I can get there.”

“MS is an unpredictable and often disabling disease. While we’ve come a long way in understanding and treating MS, there’s still so much more to do. That’s why I’m participating and raising funds, and I hope I can count on you to help fuel progress. The money you donate will drive groundbreaking research and services to ensure people affected by MS have the resources they need to live their best lives.”
