Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often debilitating disease of the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord). MS can affect vision, hearing, memory, balance, coordination and mobility. Its effects are physical, emotional, financial, and last a lifetime. There is no cure.
The streets of Lexington will be filled with walkers looking for a cure for multiple sclerosis on Saturday, April 6. The funds support life-changing programs and cutting-edge research and give hope to the more than 7,000 people living with MS in our community. (For more information, visit National MS Society – BLUE RIDGE CHAPTER.)
When you shop at our downtown Lexington store on Saturday, April 6, we will donate 10% of all purchases to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. It’s our way of paying it back and taking a stand against MS.

MYTH VS. FACT
Myth Don’t wash your jacket! Washing a waterproof jacket strips the DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
Fact: Detergent leaves behind residue that will mask the DWR and cause it to wet out. When the DWR fails, water saturates the fabric. When surface fabric is saturated, water vapor cannot escape, and you get wet from the inside! Using a technical, soap-based cleaner like Nikwax Tech Wash (which we carry!) will remove detergent residue, dirt, and oils, leaving DWR intact.
