MIDLAND - Today 22 teams came out together at the First Annual Dodgeball Fundraiser for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society of West Texas.
The event gathered players from sponsors and other community members. Some of them were the Odessa and Midland Police, 7-Eleven, Basic Energy and Concho Resources.
The society’s president says they are very happy with the response from the local sponsors and local community.
"Our goal was $10,000 and we surpass that so we are very happy with the companies and people who have supported us. We look forward to growing more each year," said West Texas MS Society President, Mark Solari.
This past Wednesday people living with this illness shared their story with Texas Legislators at the 2013 Texas Public Policy Conference in Austin.
Their goal was to educate Legislators on the importance of them supporting legislations that can make a difference in the lives of Texans living with MS. To help log on to nationalmssociety.org.
