Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and the body. There's no cure, but with the help of dedicated fundraisers, research is progressing at a remarkable rate. In 2010, the National MS Society invested more than $37 million to support 325 new and ongoing MS research projects.

You can bring us closer to a world free of MS! Walk MS is a simple but incredibly powerful way for you to share in the hope for the future. It's a day to come together, to be together, to celebrate the movement together.

This year's  Walk MS will be on Sunday May 6th and as in previous years, will start at Apollo High School. Registration begins at 8am with step off at 9am.

Forming a Walk MS team is an opportunity to share a great experience with friends, family or co-workers. Have more fun and raise more dollars for the MS movement by starting or joining a team today!

Last year, the temps seesawed near freezing as over 560 Central Minnesota residents struck out. A brisk wind and a few late MN snow showers were no match for the intrepid folks as they made their way from Apollo High into downtown and back, raising nearly $86,ooo. You can see a photo gallery of some teams and walkers above.
