Talking with Marianne Dilworth

Written by on June 11, 2012 at 9:00 am

Ken Gagne interviews Marianne DIlworth about the inspiration she finds to cheer, shout, dance, hug, and support anyone who walks for MS — and for her.

Welcome to MS Challenge Talk, a weekly audio recording that introduces you to the people and stories behind MS Challenge Walk.

This week, host Ken Gagne speaks with crew person Marianne Dilworth. It took Marianne a few years to "come out" with her diagnosis of MS, but since she did, she has relentlessly supported any and all National MS Society events. "Pocahontas" can be found cheering, blasting music, and handing out hugs and kisses to walkers, bicyclists, motorists, and anyone else who needs support anywhere else on the route. In this podcast, you'll learn her reason for such passionate dedication — and her cause will become your cause, too.
