More About Walk MS
Walk MS is a volunteer-driven event coordinated by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The events are held in Wisconsin each April and May. Each location features handicap accessible routes, rest stops, first aid and more. It is the largest annual fundraiser of the National MS Society-Wisconsin Chapter.

About Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and the National MS Society
MS interrupts the flow of information from the brain to the body and stops people from moving. It is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. Most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, and approximately 80% of those who are diagnosed are women. While the progression, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, advances in research and treatment are giving hope to those affected by the disease.

MS stops people from moving. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society exists to make sure it doesn’t.
