Walking With Faith, Inc., a 501 (c) 3 organization, began with one woman determined not to let being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) keep her down.
Alecia R. Harris, Founder, President & CEO of Walking With Faith, Inc., went to college, had a house and family, worked at one of the nation's top ten hospitals and as a university instructor, and was living the American dream when she was diagnosed with MS.
In a matter of months her life had changed. She had a decision to make: live with the facts or with
her faith. She chose her Faith.
Knowing that everything was in divine order, Alecia began volunteering for the Michigan Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. In addition to working on the planning committee for the annual "MS Walks," she began asking others to join the team she was forming called "Walking With Faith." The team and fellowship grew.
Today, there are over
one hundred volunteers, and Walking With Faith, Inc. holds several benefit
and educational events to raise funds and awareness to find a cure for
the devastating effects of MS.
A 501 (C) 3 organization, Walking
With Faith, Inc. is a team of more than 100 volunteers who work together to raise funds toward ending the devastating effects of MS.
