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.

MERRILL - A Northwoods school pulled off a big surprise on Friday to honor a few veterans. After months of planning, students and staff at Kate Goodrich Elementary got to see the payoff of all their hard work.
"It was like kind of overwhelming," said Wolfgang Lenk.
Lenk, Todd Annis, and Randy Perry had no idea they would be the guests of honor.
"To see all these kids and knowing how hard they worked selling all this, and now your name comes up that you're one of the three recipients, it was awesome," said Annis.
