On Saturday two Ocracoke Girl Scout troops traveled to Greenville, NC to participate in Walk MS, sponsored by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. MS is an autoimmune disease that attacks the brain and spinal cord. At least three Ocracoke residents, including one 18 year old girl, have been diagnosed with MS. The walk helped raise funds for research leading to better medicines, and, we hope, someday a cure.
To date the Ocracoke Girl Scouts have raised more than $3,000.00. Donations in the name of island girl scouts are being accepted until June 1. To donate click on the link below, then click on an individual girl's name...then click on the "donate" button:
