The MS Walk is a popular event every year on the Southcoast.  Hundreds of walkers gather pledges and later walk several miles to raise money for the fight against Multiple Sclerosis.

However, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year's MS Walk will be a virtual event to be held May 1st.

MS is an chronic autoimmune disease that affects movement and bodily functions.  MS Walks are taking place around the country to raise money for research to find a cure, and according to Development Coordinator Jane Lima, scientific advances are being made.
