The Eastern North Carolina Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society has announced sponsorship opportunities for the annual Goldsboro Walk MS to be held Saturday, May 1, at the Herman Park.

"Sponsors of Walk MS are seen, recognized and celebrated for their partnership and commitment to achieving a world free of multiple sclerosis," said Shannon Hinson, vice president of development for the Eastern North Carolina Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. "Not only do sponsors help promote their company's reach, but help support the entire Goldsboro community."

Sponsors for the event have the opportunity to receive media exposure, brand exposure and on-site benefits, as well as recognition from the National MS Society on its Web site, newsletter and print collateral. Available sponsorships range from $15,000 Hope Sponsors to $250 Expo Sponsors.

Goldsboro Walk MS has set a fundraising goal of $12,000.

Sixty percent of all the funds raised will go toward programs, services and advocacy for people living with MS and 40 percent supports national research to find the cause and cure of MS.
