First-Time Walkers

Welcome to Walk MS! Together We Are Stronger.

As a first time participant, we are here to make your Walk MS experience amazing. There are many activities during the day, so arrive early to get the most out of this event.

At Walk MS you are joining a group of passionate individuals to move together toward a world free of multiple sclerosis. Welcome!

This was my first walk and to have my family and friends surround me, support me, and encourage me to finish was absolutely amazing. To see the love that each person who was there had for whoever they were there with, oh it was just beautiful. And even more importantly, after the walk was over and all these people that I never met extended themselves to me and me to them, BEST EXPERIENCE EVER!" – Karen Andrews
