MS Will Knot Defeat Us

Thousands of participants, spectators, and volunteers across the country visited the AbbVie tent at MuckFest® MS where they contributed to the MS Will Not Defeat Us Shoelace wall. This wall is an inspirational display of support, overcoming obstacles, and of our Muckers’ passion to end MS forever.

The bright shoelaces shared stories of people mucking for mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, friends, neighbors, and for themselves. Some shoelaces mentioned specific names, others that we “Muck for a cure”, and some simply and powerfully say a single word: “ME”.

Each inscribed shoelace was added to a display emblazoned with that city’s name. The walls traveled from event to event, and the symbolic light of the bright shoelaces grew brighter and brighter as we grew from one event to two…four…seven…and ultimately ELEVEN events, ELEVEN panels strong.

We hope you were able to join us in 2016 and add your story to a shoelace. It is a powerful reminder that when we are united and tied together, MS Will Knot Defeat Us.
