GamingForMSthumb

Ladies and gentlemen, all of us at Gamers Giving Back and Gaming World Entertainment Network are excited to announce the return of the MS Toga Party, April 18th, 2015 at 1PM CST in Guild Wars 1 and Guild Wars 2. This year’s event promises to be bigger, better, and bolder than any year before as we rally together to defeat MS once and for all.

WHAT IS THE TOGA PARTY?

The MS Toga Party is an in-game party in Guild Wars 1 and Guild Wars 2 run by Gaming World Entertainment Network (GW-EN.com) with the express purpose of having fun and rallying together as a community to raise funds and awareness for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, Saskatchewan Division. We have a live radio show for the duration of the event with information about MS, interviews with the MS Society of Canada and members of our community who fight MS every day, as well as awesome tunes, trivia, and in-game giveaways; a variety of fun in-game events including a Best Toga competition (and a new, exciting event this year, which we’ll release more about soon!), and real world prize raffles for donating to the MS Society!

WHAT IS MS?

(directly from http://mssociety.ca/en/information/ms_what.htm?)

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system which is composed of the brain and spinal cord. The disease attacks the myelin which is a protective covering wrapped around the nerves of the central nervous system.

MS attacks the Mylein sheathe that protects our nerves; this causes distortion of the messages sent along the Central Nervous System, causing an array of symptoms.

 

Multiple sclerosis is a complex disease and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada is here to help. No one needs to face MS alone. In communities across Canada, our volunteers and staff provide information, support, educational events and other resources for people with MS and their families. Researchers funded by the MS Society are working to develop new and better treatments. Their ultimate goal is the cure for MS.


MS can be terrifying– it doesn’t affect everyone the same way, and over time the damage caused by the disease can leave people unable to walk, or with vision impairments, or loss of sensation in entire portions of their body.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Do you want to support us in our quest to end MS? There are lots of ways you can help!

As we approach the event itself, we’ll have plenty more details for you. Until then, you can always ask questions of us on Facebook, or in the comments below.

We have proven time and time again that gamers can band together and achieve incredible things. Let’s bring our fight to MS and help find a cure!
