About Us:

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.

Executive Summary:

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.  Provided by this organization are

Educational Seminars
A Quarterly Newsletter
Fund Raising Events

Walking With Faith, Inc. started as a team of more than 100 walkers who participated in the annual MS Walk in support of their family and friends who suffer from the debilitating effects of this disease.  Collectively, this team of walkers began raising funds through their fundraising events.  These annual events include:

MS Benefit Dinner
MS Benefit Luncheon
MS Benefit Concert
MS Benefit Golf Outing

The most exciting initiative began when "Kids FUN-RAISE for Multiple  Sclerosis, Inc.," was organized by kids to raise funds for MS.  These kids, who have a parent or loved one who suffers from this disease, wanted to reach outside of themselves to help someone else. Their fundraising events include:

Kids Bowl for MS
Kids Roller Skate for MS
Kids Jump Rope for MS

Since 2002 Walking With Faith, Inc. has raised specifically towards research, by donating all proceeds to the Michigan Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
