Hockey Team to Raise Money for Multiple Sclerosis

(Morrisville, NY – Feb. 2012) Determined to make a difference on the ice and in the community, the Morrisville State College men’s ice hockey program will be hosting a Multiple Sclerosis Charity Game Saturday, Feb. 4, against conference rival SUNY Oswego.

Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord; it can cause blindness, muscle weakness and coordination, trouble with balance, numbness and memory-related problems.

There is no known cause or cure, only medication that slows the progress of symptoms.

This terrible disease has touched the hearts of the Morrisville State College community and members of the hockey program, both within our families and among our friends. Proceeds from gate receipts, raffles and the online jersey auction will benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Minimum bids for the jerseys start at $55, and bidding will begin Tuesday, Jan. 24, at 9 a.m. The online auction will continue until Sunday, Feb. 5, at noon. Winners will be announced Monday, Feb. 6, on the Morrisville State athletic web site.

Every penny counts in the battle against multiple sclerosis. For more information regarding the event, contact the Morrisville State hockey office at (315) 684-6488.
