Napa, CA – CRUSH MS, a local non-profit organization, donated $50,000 to Stanford University on November 12, 2016. Accepting on behalf of Stanford was Dr. Lucas Kipp, a specialist in the diagnosis and treatment of multiple sclerosis. The funds will help Stanford’s MS research programs find a cure for the disease.
Dr. Kipp was invited to Napa by Crush MS and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in order to address the local MS community regarding the latest research developments. His report gives hope to those living with MS that progress is being made in treatment.
The 2016 CRUSH MS Summer Celebration wine tasting event raised the donated funds. The 4th annual CRUSH MS Summer Celebration will be held at Reid Family Vineyards in Napa on Saturday, July 29, 2017.
In addition to funding research, Crush MS is sponsoring an MS support group in Napa. The first meeting will be in January 2017. For more information, please go to crushms.org.
Founded in 2014 by Kevin Reid of Reid Family Vineyards and Julie Hare of Counter Punch Wines, CRUSH MS is a network of wineries dedicated to raising funds and awareness in order to create a world free of multiple sclerosis and help people living with the disease to live well now.
