MINNEAPOLIS — The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Minnesota Chapter holds the 21st annual Walk MS: Christopher & Banks Walk presented by Anchor Bank Sunday, May 4, in 17 cities throughout Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Funds raised through Walk MS support programs and services for the estimated 9,000 people with MS sclerosis in Minnesota and western Wisconsin and fund research for a cure.
In 2008, Walk MS events will be held in Alexandria, Bemidji, Brainerd, Chisholm, Duluth, Fairmont, Faribault, Fergus Falls, Grand Rapids, Mankato, Marshall, Red Wing, River Falls, Wis., Rochester, St. Cloud, Twin Cities and Willmar. The 21st annual Walk MS is expected to raise a total of more than $2 million.

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.
