Walk MS 2013: Stepping Towards the Cure


Every year, across the Delaware Valley, thousands of individuals and families join together at Walk MS to make their mark against multiple sclerosis. Since 1988, the MS Society has raised more than $10 million to support people living with MS.  This event is accessible to all individuals, no matter your age, physical ability or financial situation, Walk MS allows communities to join together to create a world free of MS.

MS is a disease that impacts people in the community and Walk MS helps raise funds to support life-changing research for the 14,000 people in the Delaware Valley living with MS. 

In the Lehigh Valley, walkers will be able to gather in support at Coca-Cola Park on Sunday, May 5 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Upon return from a 3-mile walk participants will be sure to find family fun activities, music, and local food. The Iron Pig’s Mascots, Ferris and Fefe, will be available for pictures prior to the afternoon’s game against the Indianapolis Indians. At Walk MS, our connections become more powerful than the connections destroyed by MS.

The MS Society provides local communities with education and wellness programs, access to self-help groups, and provides financial assistance to families living with MS, among other services. For more information or to register for Walk MS 2013, please visit www.walk4MS.org. This spring make the choice to Be Inspired, Get Connected and Walk MS.
