DENISON, TX--- Over 2.5 million people suffer from multiple sclerosis worldwide. The auto-immune disease targets the brain and spinal cord, affecting many of it's victim's mobility and sight. Currently there is no cure for MS, but one North Texas man is trying to do his part to fix that.

Jim Riley was diagnosed with MS over five years ago and is now dedicated to finding a cure. 

Sunday he hosted the 1st annual "Riley Round Up for MS" to raise money towards finding that cure. Sunday's event was a two-ring show that awarded belt buckles in both rings. During the event, there was a silent auction that included several gift items.

All of the proceeds from the show will go towards the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, which is committed to finding a cure for MS.
