Mountain Brook students kick for a cause: VIDEO






















Mountain Brook Junior High School students have a big goal. They want to raise $15,000 this year for the local chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Multiple sclerosis causes pain, numbness, cognitive problems and disorientation for many sufferers. The disease, often shortened to MS, affects 400,000 people in the United States, including some mothers of Mountain Brook students.That’s what inspired students to begin the “Kick MS” kickball event.

Dozens of teenagers join teams, pick names, play one another and raise money for MS research and awareness. This year’s game event kicked off Sunday afternoon.

Lori Smith’s son is playing this year. She’s been living with MS for 15 years. She says the work the students do to raise money helps them understand the problems of those around them.

“They can put a name and face together to understand it a little better, and I think that helps them understand even more the importance of doing this and they do it all for the right reasons,” Smith said.

The Alabama-Mississippi Chapter President of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is Andrew Bell. He said the students have helped raise $40,000 in four years.

“Really going the extra mile, when they’re out of school in the summer, to raise money and awareness for the MS society, it’s quite extraordinary,” Bell said.
