JOIN US VIRTUALLY FOR THE WOMEN ON THE MOVE LUNCHEON
The Women On The Move Luncheon is one of the National MS Society's premier fundraising campaigns to support those living with MS. It is an empowering way for women to unite with other women in the movement to create a world free of MS. While we can't gather, celebrate, and support in-person, we can still connect as a community!
Join us for a special streamed program on October 3rd, as we learn more about how the Society is supporting people living with MS during this unprecedented time. Jared McCann, from the Pittsburgh Penguins and his mother, Erin, who lives with MS, will join us to share their story, as well as Ken Rice, Evening Anchor, KDKA TV, CBS.
Now, more than ever, people affected by MS rely on critical information, support, and connection to remain strong and resilient throughout this crisis and beyond. Our world may look different right now, but our commitment to changing the lives of people affected by MS remains. Join the movement today and help create a world free of MS!
JARED McCANN and ERIN McCANN
When Jared McCann was 4 years old, his mother, Erin, would enlist his help at the grocery store.
If Erin McCann couldn't find something, she'd send Jared on a mission that wouldn't end until he either located the item or asked someone to point him in the proper direction.
Now, nearly two decades later, those trips serve as an important example of what makes both McCanns special. Jared, a speedy forward the Penguins acquired in a Feb. 1 trade, has figured out a way to mesh on this team.
Erin McCann, meanwhile, refuses to let an ongoing battle with multiple sclerosis slow her down, an everyday fight that pushes her youngest son to strive continually for more at hockey's highest level.
She's been a big inspiration in my life," Jared McCann said. "Looking at how she handles herself every day and what she has to go through with the MS, not being able to walk sometimes, it humbles you. It makes you realize there are a lot bigger problems in the world.
