FAIRFIELD, CT - Leo Katsetos of Chincoteague, VA, senior associate athletic director for Athletic Training/head athletic trainer at Sacred Heart University, was recently featured on the popular health and wellness website, The website has a section labeled “People Living with MS.” Katsetos, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2003, has been involved with spreading awareness about the disease that affects more than two million people in the United States. “I wear it on my chest,” said Katsetos.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society recently put forth a nationwide search for individuals living with MS. Katsetos was one of five selected to participate in a filmed feature video that will be played on during the month of April. Katsetos spent an entire day in New York City while a camera crew filmed the panel discussion. Topics included daily life with MS, adapting to MS, how MS affects relationships, MS in the workplace and available support groups.

There will also be an individual profile that will detail how MS has affected Katsetos’ own life. The personal feature, which takes place here at Sacred Heart University, will include the ups and downs of living with MS, how Katsetos has adapted to life with MS and his influence on others diagnosed with the disease. “I have MS,” said Katsetos, “but it doesn’t have me.” Katsetos believes that living a healthy and active lifestyle is paramount for his battle with MS. An avid road race and triathlon participant, he believes athletic challenges are what keep him going strong. “I have far exceeded anything MS has presented to me,” concluded a proud Katsetos.

Katsetos has put together a team, “Sacred Hearts for HOPE” for the annual MS walk in Westport, Conn. Over the past seven years, they have raised more than $130,000. This year’s event will take place on Sunday, April 21, at Sherwood Island Park is Westport. Registration starts at 8 a.m. and the walk begins at 9.
