The National MS Society is a charity that our friends at RBI say is near and dear to their heart, so it makes us happy to forfeit our wager to them. The organization is dedicated to helping people living with MS thrive despite the challenges that Multiple Sclerosis presents. The National MS Society not only works tirelessly to create a stronger awareness of MS, but uses funds raised to sponsor state-of-the-art research directed at creating innovative treatments for the disease. The Illinois Chapter of the National MS Society provides a platform for people in the area who are affected by MS to connect and support one another, as well as offering educational programs for people to learn and empower themselves. You can find our more about their efforts in the community on their website.
In a classy move, RBI also decided to donate to the charity themselves, matching the contribution from AK. Their decision to contribute themselves reinforced the true goal of our friendly bet: contributing to a cause that helps people in need. Though there had to be a winner between the two teams, the wager between AK and RBI was a win-win from the start. When the worst-case scenario involves giving to charity, you truly can’t go wrong. Thanks again to our friends at RBI for the fun opportunity!
