People living with multiple sclerosis who participate in day wellness programs and services at the Dignity Health MS Achievement Center (MSAC) took part in a Virtual California International Marathon. Participants competed in teams and logged miles on stationary exercise equipment (bike, elliptical, treadmill, etc.). The virtual CIM was a fun way to challenge participants in physical activity while achieving the mission of the center to improve health and wellness for people with multiple sclerosis. Thanks to Dr. John Schafer, medical director; and Brian Hutchinson, director at the MSAC for their work and dedication to helping people with MS! KCRA 3 came out to cover this fun event.
