On Saturday, April 11, citizens are invited to join friends and neighbors for Walk MS: Marietta 2020 in Glover Park on the Marietta Square. Walk MS: Marietta is an opportunity for people living with MS and those who care about them to connect, join together and be inspired.
The site opens at 7:00 a.m. and the walk begins at 9:00 a.m. One mile and three mile fully accessible routes are available, and the walk is open to all ages.
Since 1988, hundreds of thousands of people have taken part in Walk MS events across the country, raising critical funds and awareness for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS.
