Funds raised support IN Cure of MS by benefiting the National MS Society. These funds directly impact the vision of a world free of MS by supporting research for Progressive MS.
Each year a gala is held to help raise such funds. The 2023 gala theme is yet to be released. It will be a night of music, food and fun on Friday, June 16, 2023 to benefit those impacted by MS.

a world free of Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple Sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. The exact cause of MS is unknown.
More than 9,000 Hoosiers are currently served by the National Multiple Society Indiana State Chapter, but it was recently discovered that the actual number of those living with the disease could be more than double that number. In February 2019, a landmark study was released stating that nearly 1 million adults were living with MS in the United States, more than twice the previously reported number.
Research for MS
We are at a pivotal moment where significant progress is being made and breakthrough solutions are within reach. The complexity of MS requires a comprehensive approach that will uncover solutions for all impacted by the disease. This will need results-driven research and collaboration worldwide to stop MS in its tracks, restore lost function, and end the disease forever. To best do this, we support researched fueled by the National MS Society. The NMSS has funded over $1.06 billion in research since 1946. They have paved the way for all MS treatment options that exist today.
IN Cure of MS
IN Cure of MS was created after a group of individuals came together to make a difference for those impacted by Multiple Sclerosis. The dream was to create an event to increase awareness and raise money for MS research while having a memorable experience. In 2022, the event raised over $200,000 to help fund Progressive MS research through the National MS Society. Since the inaugural event, IN Cure of MS has supported over $600,000 towards MS research.
