Annual MS Fundraising Walk Scheduled for April 17, 2005


LANCASTER, PA, April 4th, 2005 - NeenerNeener.Net, a website dedicated to Massive Multiplayer Online Role-playing Games (MMORPGs), today announced that they have received support from game developers and gamers across the world for the MS Walk 2005. Team participates in the annual fundraising event benefiting research for Multiple Sclerosis, and with generous support from the interactive entertainment industry, has raised more that $30,000 since 2001.

Shawn "Kwip" Williams, the founder of was moved to action when his wife, Becky "Kwipette" Williams, was diagnosed with MS. Since 2001, their fundraising efforts in the gaming community have grown, and this year, Team will be accompanied on the Walk by representatives from Mythic Entertainment and Turbine, Inc. The MS Walk 2005 is scheduled for April 17, 2005, and donations to Team can be made at their site,

"The first year, we expected to raise maybe $1,000," says Shawn. "Instead, we raised more than $8,000 from gamers across the world who were used to reading the humorous stories, but instead found themselves moved by the touching tale of what Becky and I were going through in dealing with her MS."

"The media tends to portray gamers in a negative, anti-social light, and the overwhelming support Team has received shows how inaccurate this is. Every year, we have thousands of gamers stepping forward to donate what they can," said Shawn. "This year's support from game developers is even more proof that the gaming community is full of wonderful, caring people."

Sanya Thomas, Internet Relations Manager for Mythic Entertainment is traveling from the Washington, DC area to join Team NeenerNeener.Net, and Jesse Kurlancheek, Nikolaus Davidson and Heather Sinclair, developers from Turbine, Inc., are traveling from Boston, MA.
