May 2: Walk MS: Michiana

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 8,000 Hoosiers living with MS throughout the state. The dollars raised support life-changing programs and cutting-edge research. Every connection counts.
