MS 5K Walk
The annual MS 5K Walk is coming up this weekend. The event raises money for research into the causes and cures for the disease.
Local MS Walk Chair, Cindy Coffman, says a big step in recent studies is the use of MRI machines to diagnose patients. She says “At least you know what you’re dealing with so you know how to treat it, how to go forward. A big thing with MS is use it or lose it. If you aren’t going to be active, the chances of you ending up in a wheelchair go dramatically up.”
The Fond du Lac MS Walk is aiming to raise $37,000 dollars for research. Registration starts at 9:00 Saturday morning at the Marian University Gym, with the 5K starting at 10:00. For more information, check out this website.
