MINNEAPOLIS — The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Minnesota Chapter holds the 2008 Walk MS: Christopher & Banks Twin Cities Walk presented by Anchor Bank Sunday, May 4, at Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis.
The 2008 Twin Cities walk features a new route showcasing the best of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Participants choose a 1.5- or 6.5-mile route, with both options starting and ending at Minnehaha Park.
Including the Twin Cities walk, there are 17 walks held across Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Last year’s Walk MS: Christopher & Banks Walk presented by Anchor Bank broke records in fundraising and participation with nearly 1,000 volunteers and 10,000 walkers raising approximately $1.9 million to help end MS. This year the 21st annual Walk MS: Christopher & Banks Walk is expected to raise more than $2 million to support programs and services for people with MS 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.
