The city of Southfield will light City Hall orange March 10-16, 2024 in recognition of Multiple Sclerosis Week in partnership with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Orange is the color used to represent multiple sclerosis awareness, and is a way to honor those who live with multiple sclerosis and inspire people to work towards creating a world free of the disease.

Multiple Sclerosis is an unpredictable disease of the central nervous system. Currently, there is no cure. Symptoms vary from person to person and may include disabling fatigue, mobility challenges, cognitive changes, and vision issues. An estimated 1 million people live with multiple sclerosis in the United States. Early diagnosis and treatment are critical to minimize disability.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, founded in 1946, is the global leader of a growing movement dedicated to creating a world free of MS. The Society funds cutting edge research for a cure, drives change through advocacy, and provides programs and services to help people affected by multiple sclerosis live their best lives.
