Walk MS goes virtual: eFinancial wins ‘Top Overall Corporate Team’ award for MS research fundraising

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. In 2019, research found that nearly 1 million people in the U.S. are living with MS – twice as many as the previous estimate. This makes breakthroughs for those affected even more important, especially during an unprecedented global crisis that calls on us to come together and help those with weakened or compromised immune systems.

At eFinancial, we’re committed to making life better for the people and communities we serve. We believe that together, we can work to stop MS in its tracks. With our engagement, the next chapter in the MS story could be the last.

That’s why we teamed up with The National MS Society, the largest private organization supporting MS research globally, with our very own National MS Society Team in 2020. This spring, we called on our EFLY Squad to participate in digital fundraising events like Virtual Walk MS on May 30, our workspace decoration competition, and a lunch and learn. We’re thrilled to announce that eFinancial was recognized as a “Top Overall Corporate Team” by the National MS Society for our dedication to the cause.

We’re proud to know that our employees rallied together and truly made a difference with their participation and fundraising. While these events and experiences looked different than usual this year, our mission remained the same.

“The National MS Society is seeing an elevated level of needed support for its at-risk clients. Traditionally, this support was generated through in-person events,” says Chris Campbell, President of eFinancial. “eFinancial’s ability to partner and demonstrate strong virtual engagement during the pandemic is important to the mission of this organization.”

MS won’t stop because of this crisis, and neither will we: People with MS need us now more than ever. Follow eFinancial on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram to see how our team is stepping up for this important cause, and visit our Walk MS team page to learn how you can help close the book on MS for good.
