The New Jersey Metro Chapter Walk MS 2014 is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. Calling all those with multiple sclerosis who have the ability to walk, caregivers, friends and those who just love to walk, please mark your calendar and join in at a location near you. Check the Walk MS website here or call 800-344-4867 to register. If you cannot walk, you can volunteer, donate or just show up to cheer for those who can. After the worst winter in recent New Jersey history, it is a great way to shed those winter blues for this annual rite of spring.
