STAR december

Each month, Embrace the Difference is putting the spotlight on someone in our community who has truly shined in our community & brightened the lives of others.

This month, we are thrilled to present Amy Aeckerle as our December Embrace the Difference STAR! Amy is a passionate volunteer with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Upstate New York Chapter. Seven years ago, she formed a Walk MS team called the Wacky Walkers, which has since gone on to raise thousands of dollars towards nationwide MS research, programs, and local support services! More recently, she organized the Family Fun Trick-or-Treat stroll, a new part of the MS Society’s Monster Scramble 5K/10K fundraiser, with great success.

Amy is known for her tireless energy, dedication, and infectious smile, with an attitude that constantly inspires others. She is devoted to raising funds for multiple sclerosis research and support, selflessly volunteering her personal time for the cause.

To show our appreciation for her service, Amy has received an Embrace the Difference pendant. Amy, THANK YOU for truly embracing the difference and being such an inspiration. You are a star!


Each STAR of the month is rewarded with one of our pendants and gets a spotlight on our blog! Do you know someone who deserves to be named an Embrace the Difference STAR? Nominate him or her here!
