Kristen Evans Named Latest BAMS Hero

Band Against MS (BAMS) has selected Kristen Evans as our latest BAMS Hero. Evans was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2007 as she was entering her senior year at the University of Georgia. Even though she endures the daily problems associate with MS, Evans makes sure to give back to others battling chronic diseases, including MS.

Kristen helped in the efforts to build Katie’s Pool—an adaptive aquatics swimming pool in Augusta, Georgia, at the local YMCA that serves many people and groups including MS patients from the Medical College of Georgia. Kristen has also been the inspiration for a team the last three years for Walk MS - Athens. Team Kristen has had the largest number of walkers each year and has raised over $10,000 towards the fight against MS.
