Sign up for the MS Walleye Fishing Tournament scheduled for Wednesday, June 8. Get a group of six friends, customers or co-workers to fill a boat. The fully-stocked boat will set sail from the Midway Marina, located at 1871 NE Catawba Rd. in Port Clinton.
Join more than 150 anglers as they participate in the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s 27th Annual Walleye Fishing Tournament. The anglers are treated to a continental breakfast starting at 6:30 a.m. before they head out to fish aboard a charter boat with a licensed charter boat captain at the helm. Each boat is stocked with food, beverages, bait and ice.
When the participants return in the afternoon they take part in a light dinner and win some great prizes while their catch is being cleaned and bagged for them to take home. Prizes are awarded for largest fish and largest stringer.
The cost for a boat with six people is $1,350. Individual tickets are also available for $250. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
The funds raised through the MS Walleye Tournament helps more than 20,000 Ohio residents living with multiple sclerosis. Funds are directed toward services like transportation, durable medical equipment loan, friendly-visitation programs for those who are homebound or hospitalized and self-help groups. Funds also support research efforts at Ohio institutions like the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Case Western Reserve University and The Ohio State University Medical Center where MS researchers are working to find the cause and a cure for the chronic, unpredictable disease of the central nervous system.

About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million worldwide.
About the National Multiple Sclerosis Society
The Society mobilizes people and resources so that everyone affected by multiple sclerosis can live their best lives as we stop MS in its tracks, restore what has been lost and end MS forever. Last year alone, through our comprehensive nationwide network of services, the Society devoted $122.2 million to connect more than one million individuals to the people, information and resources they need. To move closer to a world free of MS, the Society also invested $54 million to support more than 380 new and ongoing research projects around the world. We are united in our collective power to do something about MS now and end this disease forever.
