Slug It Out For MS!

22 07 2008

It’s time to slug it out in the fight against multiple sclerosis! On Saturday August 9th, Multiple Solutions, the junior board of the National MS Society – Greater Illinois Chapter, will be hosting the 8th annual MS Slugfest 2008 at Mt. Greenwood Park on the South Side (115th and Pulaski). MS Slugfest is a one-day, 16-inch, co-ed softball tournament with up to 64 teams of 15 players. The event is held annually, rain or shine, and includes a fully catered lunch by Robinson’s Ribs, the Weber Grill Home Run Derby, and some great fundraising and championship prizes (like Sox/Cubs tickets, gift certificates, etc)! 

So far, over 30 teams have signed up to play in this year’s tournament and I’m confident that Slugfest is on track to meet/surpass their fundraising goal of $130,000! I’ve been to a couple of Multiple Solutions meetings this year, and the Slugfest chair and committee are REALLY working their butts off! So, come on out and support them/us as we take one step closer to a world free of MS!!!
