Walk MS raises money and awareness on behalf of those living with multiple sclerosis.
This year marks the first Rhinelander MS Walk. It is one of 18 walks that will be held in Wisconsin. Last year the walks generated nearly $1.5 million to fund research, programs and services benefitting the more than 10,000 children, women and men in the state diagnosed with MS as well as those who love and care for them.
The walks are held in Wisconsin each April and May. Each location features handicapped accessible routes, rest stops, snacks, first aid and more.
