Plymouth Ma: Mark Caruso Supports MS Walk for the 13th Time.

On April 1, 2012 CAT Exteriors’s Mark Caruso, along with his family, will join with the rest of “Team Jen” for the 15th Anniversary Plymouth’s MS Walk.

For the last thirteen years Mark, his wife Jean and children Owen (whose 7) and Emilyn (whose 9) and the rest of Team Jen have walked in honor of Jennifer Cook of Whitman Mass, to raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

According to the Walk MS (multiple sclerosis) website: “The primary goal of Walk MS is to
raise funds to help people who have MS, and their families, through MS education, support, advocacy, services, and research.”

Walk MS is the signature fundraising event of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Walkers who participate in the Walk share a remarkable achievement with over 250,000 other walkers in more than 700 cities across the country. They truly And make a difference by raising essential funds for research and services for people with MS.

Through his participation, Mark helped Walk MS reach their goal is to raise $2.9 million and to have 15,000 walkers in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont. According to Caruso, “It’s important to me because Jen Cook is a dear friend who was diagnosed with this disease years ago. Fundraising for MS is a big part of her life and we want to support her and help her in any way we can. Maybe someday it will lead to a cure.”

Jennifer has been dealing with MS for 15 years with relapsing-remitting MS. According to the 3.22.12 edition of the Whitman-Hanson Express Jennifer’s diagnosis was recently updated to secondary-progressing MS. The paper also mentioned that “Jen’s Team is now a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization, boasting 150 volunteer walkers from Whitman…, Plymouth and several northeastern states.”

CAT Exteriors and Almar are proud to support Team Jen. And Congratulations to Mark Caruso for his 13 years of support to this important cause. We know that with our help, his participation will make huge strides to the $25,000 team fundraising goal for this year’s event.
