CONNECT. WALK MS.
What if we could connect every person living with MS? Every person who cares about someone with MS. Every family affected by it. Everyone who has seen what this disease can do to people. What if we could come together, even one day a year, to show the power of our connections? At Walk MS, our connections become more powerful than the connections MS destroys.
Walk MS connects people living with MS and those who care about them. It is an experience unlike any other - a day to come together, to celebrate the progress we've made and to show the power of our connections.
When you participate in Walk MS, the funds you raise give hope to the more than 6,500 people living with MS in Alabama and Mississippi. The dollars raised support life-changing programs and cutting-edge research. Every connection counts.

Participants can enjoy the park and participate in a 1, 2 or 3 mile walking route. Not interested in walking but want to be a part of the day? Come celebrate with us by being a VOLUNTEER or VIRTUAL WALKER! Walk MS is a celebration and we want everyone there! Register now, connect with others and start fundraising today.
Walk MS is a rain or shine event – in the event of predicted rain we
will provide information about the rain plan via phone call or e-mail so
be sure to include the correct information when registering.
Please arrive early to check-in, spend time with your teammates and enjoy the pre-event announcements and warm-up. Refreshments will be provided but feel free to bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy.
Looking for ways to make the event even more fun for your team? Create a TEAM T-SHIRT, set up a TEAM TENT in our Team Tent Village, hold a Community Event to raise money for your team prior to the walk and come up with a creative TEAM NAME.
