COLEBROOK, Conn. – Women Gone Wild is back by popular demand and participants are armed and ready for the fight against MS, literally. On Sunday, June 7, women will learn outdoor activities such as riflery, archery and skeet shooting.

SIMSBURY, Conn. – As an early Mother’s Day present, two kids are supporting their mom’s fight against multiple sclerosis in a new way. Terry Bridges’ two youngest children, Renee, 13, and Sam, 12, started their own Walk MS team in honor of their mom who has lived with MS for the past five years. They are the Hurricanes of Hope.
The brother-sister duo chose a hurricane to represent their team not only because it reflects their mom’s fight against MS, but also because it is their school mascot at Henry James Memorial Middle School in Simsbury.
