When you participate in Walk MS, the funds you raise give hope to the more than 14,500 people living with MS in our community. The dollars raised support life-changing programs and cutting-edge research. Every connection counts.

While it is estimated that 2.3 people actually have Multiple Sclerosis, the numbers are not exact because, as with many illnesses, some who do have MS have not been diagnosed. The symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis can vary from one person to the next and can be similar enough to other illnesses that some are misdiagnosed.
