Join in on the newest craze – dance walking – and help end multiple sclerosis. Enjoy dance walking to awesome music, lessons from professional dancers, great performances, a raffle and silent auction. The event will end with a choreographed group performance, featuring YOU, which will be videotaped and posted to raise awareness for MS. Money will be raised through ticket sales and donations.
The Beat Dance Tour and the National MS Society, along with event co-chairs Courtney Galiano and Philip Byron bring together artists, dancers and people who want to do something about MS now for the 1st annual The Beat MS Dance Walk.
A Note from Courtney:
As some of you may know, I have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. It was a lot to process, there are good days and bad days but despite any of those things, I feel it is my duty to get involved, raise awareness and find a cure for this debilitating disease and I will use the platform I have been given to do just that.
We are so excited to team up with the MS Society, an incredible organization. MS may stop people from moving but this movement works there hardest to prevent that. A portion of every registration will go to the MS Society.
WITH YOUR HELP I KNOW WE REALLY CAN BEAT MS!
Thanks to my sweet guest Courtney Galiano...who not only shared her story about getting MS but how inspiring it's been for her to put this big event together for the cause!! Hopefully the first annual of MANY to come!

K9s For Warriors is dedicated to provide service canines to our warriors suffering from post-traumatic stress as a result of conflicts and war after 9/11...
Since 9/11 and the resulting conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan there are over 500 thousand disabled military warriors. One in five suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. One in six will attempt or commit suicide. Symptoms of PTSD are mental changes, including, but not limited to; hostility, aggression, depression, suicide, paranoia, acrophobia, nightmares, panic attacks, poor coping skills, memory loss, and lack of trust. PTSD affects not only the warriors but their families and the workplace. Studies have proven there are actual physical changes in the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex of the brain adding to the horrific war experiences that warriors have endured.
Service canines are a medically proven recovery aid for our warriors suffering from PTSD. Service canines are considered medical equipment and are recognized by the U. S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division, and the American disability act of 1990.
At K9s For Warriors, our philosophy is to involve the veteran in the training of their new service canine partner, allowing them the opportunity to be part of the solution to their recovery. Our academy is staffed by skilled certified canine handlers and trainers. Each academy is three weeks in length where the warrior learns the skills needed to train their own canines. We provide a service canine, training, certification, equipment, seminars, vet care, most meals, and housing, free of charge. Each warrior is responsible for their own transportation to and from our facility which is located in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Classes are limited to three to five warriors in each session.
K9s For Warriors will be accepting over fifty warriors for our Academy in a calendar year. Our goal is to help our warriors return to civilian life with dignity and independence. They fought for our tomorrows, we will fight for theirs.
OUR MISSION WILL BE MET!
Thanks to my amaaaaaaaaazing guest/author/animal advocate Wendy Diamond...not ONLY did we discuss the much needed funding for the above program but also her charity event and the MANY ways folks can donate a little to save our Vets AND animals in shelters...a WIN WIN ;)
DONATE LIFE CALIFORNIA is the state authorized nonprofit organization responsible for managing the Organ and Tissue Donor Registry. Our mission is to save lives by inspiring people to sign up with the state organ and tissue donor registry. Our vision is that one day all Californians will embrace organ and tissue donation as their personal responsibility.
Thanks to my guest and 2 time liver recipient Vicky Nguyen
