On April 26th at Sunset Park in Las Vegas, Team 5 will be a sponsoring "Team Tammy" for the MS walk. Registration will start at 7:00 AM, but if you pre-register you can be there at 8:00 AM. The walk is at 9:00 AM, and is a 1 mile walk on a easy level trail at Sunset Park off Sunset and Eastern. Bring your family, kids and dogs!
Tammy, originally from Massachusetts and a former Ms. Massachusetts, graduated from UNLV on a softball scholarship and then began her career in physical therapy. When she was in her younger 20's she woke up one morning with full blown MS and had no feeling in any part of her body. After years of treatment and positive backing from friends and family she has regained about 80%, but is on a regimented cycle of medications. Tammy is also a single mother of Rocky, her 6 year old son. Because of MS she was limited to certain careers and is now medically retired from North Las Vegas Correctional Facility where she operated the control center for 12 years. Tammy has been doing the MS Walk ever since she was diagnosed and continues to raise money for treatments and a cure.
Another close friend of mine and T5 is JP. JP is also diagnosed with MS and has remained positive and has kept his MS manageable by competing in bike races around the USA, and winning. JP will also be at the MS walk to raise awareness and support Tammy. They are both very humble and have put up a fight when Doctors had said they were going to be in a wheelchair and proved them wrong.
