THE MS FITNESS CHALLENGE MISSION

David & Kendra Lyons, Founders


"It is the mission of the MS Fitness Challenge to provide guidance and support to people with MS and fitness professionals worldwide in an effort to educate and train them in the benefits of exercise, nutrition and mindset in winning the battle against Multiple Sclerosis. MSFC pays for these programs through the donations of its supporters.


Our main focus is on fitness programs, such as our 12 week fitness events; online training and educational programs; training camps; nutritional counsel; and ongoing motivation for all those who want to change their lives and successfully reach their health and wellness goals despite MS."
