It never hurts to go for a stroll around the block. Why not take a walk for a good cause? This April, the National MS Society is hosting a walk to raise money and awareness for those living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
In case you’re unfamiliar with the walk or the organization, Walk MS connects people living with MS and those who care about them. It is an experience unlike any other – a day to come together, to celebrate the progress we’ve made and to show the power of our connections. When you participate in Walk MS, the funds you raise give hope to the more than 7,700 people living with MS in our community. The dollars raised support life-changing programs and cutting-edge research. Every connection counts.
There are a four walks coming up this April and May, both in Oregon and Washington:
Bend: April 19th, Starting Location: 799 SW Columbia Street.
Vancouver: April 27th, Starting Location: W. 8th & Columbia.
Central Point: April 27th, Starting Location: 555 Twin Creeks Crossing Loop.
Corvallis: May 3rd, Starting Location: 101 NW Jackson Avenue.
All events will begin with an opening ceremony at 9:30 am, and each measures as a 5k. Each walk has its own goal of donations, so if you have a chance, be sure to donate for a great cause. Of course, if you would rather volunteer to help than participate, Walk MS is always looking for a few extra hands.
