Welcome to Walk MS — connecting people living with MS and those who care about them. It is a day when we come together to show the power of our connections.

Online registration for Walk MS on May 3 is closed. You can still register onsite at the Registration Tent on Sunday, May 3.

To volunteer contact us at volunteerillinois@nmss.org or call 312.423.1139.

Important: Walk MS Know Before You Go.

The fundraising deadline is September 30, so there is still time to turn in money and the deadline to be eligible to select from our Walk MS Prize Center is June 30.

Due to the NFL Draft the following street closures are going to be in effect during our event:

  • Congress between Michigan and Columbus – including Congress Circle – will be closed beginning April 22 at 6 a.m. and will be reopened on May 8.
