Jodi DwyerWelcome 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 Jodi Dwyer, captain of The Bean Team. When Jodi was diagnosed with MS just a few years ago, she immediately became an activist, walking the one-day Boston walk and becoming a crew captain at the MS Challenge Walk, where she organized events under the Big Top Tent. This year will mark her first as a walker. In this interview, Jodi discusses why she wasted no time in becoming involved in the NMSS, and how she and her team are transitioning from six miles to fifty.
