ROCKIN' AGAINST MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
RAMS is a philanthropic organization at the University of Missouri whose purpose is to raise money and provide service for the MS Institute of Mid-Missouri. We were established in 1993, and run from October to February of each year.
WHAT DO WE DO
RAMS hosts events throughout the month of February each year to raise money. In 2023 we raised over $200,000, which was all donated to the MS Institute of Mid-Missouri.
WHO ARE WE?
We are a steering committee comprised of 40 University of Missouri Students and two advisors, making us the largest student-run philanthropic organization at Mizzou. Our organization is housed in the University of Missouri's School of Health Professions.
DONATE TO RAMS
Any amount you are able to donate will make a difference in the lives of people living with multiple sclerosis in Mid-Missouri. The money we raise goes to the MS Institute of Mid-Missouri, and is used to help fund projects like ramps, installing grab bars, purchasing wheelchairs, cooling vests, and daily necessities for those living with multiple sclerosis.
"I am thankful for RAMS because it helped me get information on my new diagnosis of MS. It helped me understand some of what is going on with my body as well as knowing there are support groups out there with people that understand what you're going through.
RAMS helped me get things that will help me in the long run with having MS. I was so worried on how I would get these things to help me. I honestly can't express how that really relieved stress from me and my husband."
"There are so many "things" in my home, which, without RAMS, I might not have; grab bars, shower chair, hand held shower, stairwell lift, and many other "things." I put "things" in quotation marks because while they are all objects, they each represent the gratitude I hold for such an amazing group of philanthropically minded students who work so hard, by choice and with kindness and joy, to provide those things with giving hearts and joyful, kind demeanors. Thank you, RAMS, for all you do for those in this area with MS; many of us would be lacking in vital "things" and vital joy without you. "
