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.
RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.
Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.
The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.
The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.
"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
