This year the 21st annual Walk MS is expected to raise a total of more than $2 million statewide to support programs and services for people with multiple sclerosis in Minnesota and western Wisconsin and research to find a cure.

About Walk MS events
The National MS Society believes that moving is not just something you can or can’t do, but rather is who you are. This is why we sponsor events like Walk MS — to raise funds for research, as well as comprehensive programs and services for people with MS — moving closer to a world free of MS. The Christopher & Banks Walk presented by Anchor Bank is one of two Minnesota Chapter Walk MS events. The 2008 Challenge Walk MS: Twin Cities, a three-day, 50-mile walk in the Twin Cities, will be held Sept. 12 to 14.
