ICHS Walks for Multiple Sclerosis Awareness

Today, ICHS hosted a school-wide walk to support MS on behalf of SPUR: Special People United to Ride. The school walked around the ICHS and Felician University campus in support of raising awareness of MS. We are happy to report the proceeds from the ICHS dress down day were donated to SPUR for two scholarships in memory of Jon Rose.

SPUR is a NJ based non-profit organization that provides individuals with disabilities the opportunity to achieve personal goals through therapeutic horsemanship. Riding a horse provides a variety of physical, emotional, and psychological benefits.

In addition to the walk, volunteers from SPUR presented a short program to the school about the positive effects of horseback riding on those who are diagnosed and live with MS and other disabilities.

According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is and unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.
