Clay Walker Expands The Mission Of BAMS With &100K Donation To The National Pediatric

Clay Walker’s non-profit charity, Band Against MS recently expanded its mission to include funding research for pediatric Multiple Sclerosis by partnering with The National Pediatric MS Center at Stony Brook Hospital in New York. Walker personally presented a check for $100,000 from BAMS to the Center’s Director, Dr. Lauren Krupp during a presentation ceremony in New York on November 21.

“Few people realize that Multiple Sclerosis is in fact the leading cause of non-traumatic disability in young people throughout the world”, said Walker. “When we learned that Dr. Krupp and Stony Brook were the leaders in Pediatric MS research, it was obvious that we should direct our resources their way. These kids are just beautiful.”

Walker, who was diagnosed with the disease in 1996 founded Band Against MS in 2003 to provide educational information for those living with MS and fund programs that may one day lead to a cure. To date, Band Against MS has raised more than one million dollars.
