Eden is the daughter of Lois & Harold Wolland. Lois has lived with MS for 30 years. The youngest of four, Eden has watched her mother struggle, fight and always, incredibly, pull through.
Eden will not rest until a cure is found.
Eden started her Loving Lois team for the NYC MS Walk in 2001, when 15 people raised $16,000. Since that time, Loving Lois has grown to more than 100 members, has consistently ranked among the top five teams in New York City and has raised a cumulative total of more than $500,000. Eden personally raised more than $183,000 and has ranked among the top five fundraisers. For the 2005 MS Walk, Eden teamed up with Elissa Levy, captain of Team EJ, to host a charity poker tournament to benefit their teams. This “last minute” event raised more than $265,000, taking both teams above the $200,000 level. In 2006, Eden & EJ served as co-chairs of the tournament which raised over $325,000. In the fall of 2006, Eden was inducted into the National MS Society’s Hall of Fame. In 2007, Eden became one of the founding board members of MS Hope for a Cure, and was appointed Chair of the Board in 2015. Since then, Eden and EJ have joined forces to continue raising money to help find a cure for MS and help those living with the disease.
Eden has been instrumental as an MS Ambassador for the New York City Chapter of the National MS Society, appearing on NY1-TV, NBC-Today in New York, CBS Radio, and being featured in The Daily News. Eden has also appeared in a Society PSA for United Airlines. By sharing her story, she inspires others to play a part in the fight against MS. Eden’s fundraising success and the wide scope of people she has touched is a true testament to her talent as an effective leader and genuine innovator.
Professionally, Eden is a Managing Director at J.P. Morgan Securities. When Eden is not recruiting team members and raising money for MS Hope, she enjoys traveling and spending time with friends and her family. She and Anthony live in Manhattan with their 3 children Briana, Maxwell, and Dylan.
