MS Challenge Walk:

3 days. 50 miles. Closer to a cure.

Last summer the Mid-Atlantic Chapter in Charlotte, North Carolina, piloted our newest fundraising event, the MS Challenge Walk. Starting in Hickory, North Carolina, and ending in Charlotte, the participants--including some astonishing people who themselves have MS--walked, bonded, camped out together, held a candlelight ceremony, and met the challenge of a grueling but gratifying 72-hour event.

The event was so moving and successful that more MS Challenge Walks will be held from April through September in Boston, Charlotte, Kansas City, Minneapolis--St. Paul, the San Francisco Bay Area, Southern California, and St. Louis. If you have the passion, take the Challenge. Each walker sets his or her own pace, and Society staff and volunteers offer support each step of the way.
