Walk MS Northwoods Will Raise Money for Research Submitted: 05/07/2013
Rhinelander - A year ago, people with multiple sclerosis didn't have a common place in the Northwoods to share their struggles.

Now, we're less than a week away from the biggest MS event ever in the area.

The Northwoods MS Self Help group formed last year.

On Saturday, they'll host the newest version of a national spring tradition - an MS Walk. "This is our first year, and it's a learning experience, but I think that it should be a fun day, and that's what all of our walks are. People come out and they just have a good time - fellowship, friendship," says walk coordinator Janet Marie Carlstedt.

The walk is Saturday morning outside Rhinelander High School.

Newswatch 12 is entering a team to help raise money for MS research.

You can donate to our team or join the walk yourself by following the link below.
