The check was presented to Dr. Jerry Wolinsky at the Second Annual Clay Walker Charity Classic golf tournament at Pebble Beach. Wolinsky serves as director of the Multiple Sclerosis Research Group and Magnetic Resonance Imaging Analysis Center at the University of Texas Medical School. Including this gift, BAMS has provided the university with a total of $500,000 for its research efforts since 2004.

"It is a wonderful feeling to give Dr. Wolinsky and the University of Texas Medical School the necessary funding to continue valuable research in the battle against MS," said Walker, who was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis in 1996. "My hope is that our support will help researchers find the cause of and ultimately a cure for MS."

"Clay and his organization have demonstrated amazing dedication to not only the researchers in the area of MS but also to the millions of people who live with the disease on a daily basis," said Dr. Wolinsky. "We are extremely grateful for their generosity and their confidence in our continuing efforts to research the disease."
