|The Hopkins RESTORE Team (HRT) is comprised of athletes who are fighting debilitating diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS) and transverse myelitis (TM). Formed in 2008 by a group of patients, members of the Hopkins RESTORE Team were beneficiaries of the medical care provided by the physicians of the Johns Hopkins Department of Neurology. They decided to celebrate their improved physical condition by participating in a triathlon. The goal of the effort was to motivate others confronted with physical challenge to engage, get active, and find hope that they too could compete in athletic endeavors. The team joined forces with the physicians, clinicians and researchers of Project RESTORE to participate, raise funds and generate awareness together. Three events later, the Hopkins RESTORE Team (HRT) has engaged more than 85 athletes and raised more than $140,000 in support of Project RESTORE. All fundraising efforts of the HRT will benefit the ground-breaking research in diagnosing and treating multiple sclerosis, transverse myelitis and related neurologic disorders.|
