One of the largest fundraisers of the year for Multiple Sclerosis research is coming to Fayetteville soon.
The National MS Society’s annual MS Walk is set for Saturday, April 18 at Lake Fayetteville.
The event will include more than 30 teams walking to raise awareness and funds to support Arkansans affected by MS, live entertainment, food and drinks, and more.
More than 3,700 Arkansans have been diagnosed with MS and more than 11,200 Arkansans are affected in some way by the disease. This year, Walk MS has set a goal of $56,000 to support research, assistance and treatment for people living with MS in the state.
The local event is one of dozens taking place nationwide this year. Since its founding in 1988, Walk MS has raised over $870 million, helping over 2.3 million people worldwide living with MS.
Folks will begin arriving to the local walk at around 9 a.m., and the walk will begin at 10 a.m. For more information, visit nationalmssociety.org.
