Anyone have experience with Destination Cure?

I was thinking about getting into contact with this group if I am able to continue my running after I start rebif. I don't run marathons but perhaps I could use the races I do run to raise money/awareness for MS research etc.

Published in the online issue of the Archives of Neurology, the study was conducted by Dr Alireza Minagar and colleagues from the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, Shreveport.
