About Us and Our Mission

The Rockville Roadies Multiple Sclerosis Project Inc. (RRMS) knows how important physical freedom can be and we’re dedicated to helping every MS affected person enjoy that freedom to the fullest extent possible.

Founded in 2002, RRMS is a 100% volunteer 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for everyone whose mobility and inde- pendence is mired by multiple sclerosis. RRMS does this by helping MS individuals procure needed mobility equipment to remain mobile and free.

RRMS also serves to promote increased visibility of the immediate, day-to-day mobility challenges often linked to multiple sclerosis. Showcased ‘mission moments’ allow MS equipment recipients to describe the feeling and power of regaining mobility and independence. Awareness of MS disease also informs/educates the public that retaining freedom has broad benefit to the MS individual, the caregiver, the employer, and the community at-large. Concomitant. A true multiplier effect emerges from our efforts.

RRMS is governed by a genuinely motivated Board of Directors, all of whom are well-networked leaders in biotech, business,nuclear regulatory, neurology, physi- ology, and academia. Leveraging this diversity of expe- rience and horsepower, RRMS continues to execute an all-volunteer nonprofit business model that is sustain- able in challenging times and continues to grow and add community value.
