On May 16, the first non-guided team of mountain climbers with multiple sclerosis (MS) — Climb for the Cause — will begin their ascent of the highest point in North America — Denali. Located between Anchorage and Fairbanks, Denali’s summit is 20,320 feet above sea level and has one of the steepest vertical rises in the world – even greater than Mount Everest. The seven-person team made up almost exclusively of people living with MS. Their goal is to change the perception of what people living with MS can do and urge people with MS to get on drug therapy as soon as they are diagnosed.
