Updates are emailed and posted to the Walk MS event website. Children must be registered to participate. You will have the opportunity to register children at the end of the registration process. If you want to register another adult, you'll have to log out first because the Walk MS website "remembers" you on your computer. While there is no registration fee for Walk MS, the Society encourages participants to make a fundraising commitment. Money raised at Walk MS helps fund groundbreaking research and supports programs and services for those impacted by MS. Yes, dogs are welcome outside only at Midland High School but must be leashed. Service animals are always welcome. All Walk MS routes are accessible for scooters, wheelchairs, walkers or a cane. We cannot guarantee charging stations for scooters and power chairs. Please be sure your scooter or chair is fully charged to complete the route and maneuver the event venue. Accessible restrooms will be available. First-Time Walkers Welcome to Walk MS! At Walk MS, you are joining a group of passionate individuals dedicated to creating a world free of multiple sclerosis. Welcome! As a first-time participant, we want you to know that we have a wealth of resources to help your Walk MS experience memorable.   This was my first walk and to have my family and friends surround me, support me, and encourage me to finish was absolutely amazing. To see the love that each person who was there had for whoever they were there with, oh it was just beautiful. And even more importantly, after the walk was over and all these people that I never met extended themselves to me and me to them, BEST EXPERIENCE EVER!– Karen Andrews   1.

Living with MS THANK YOU TO OUR LIVING WITH MS PROGRAM SPONSOR: For participants diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Walk MS is an opportunity to learn about National MS Society services and to connect with others living with MS. The Living with MS program, nationally sponsored by Sanofi Genzyme, honors those who are diagnosed with MS and participate in Walk MS. Participants will receive a Living with MS t-shirt and can connect with others who understand what it is like to live with MS. To join and participate in the Living with MS program, simply indicate that you have MS during registration. Please note: The Living with MS program is for those who have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and attend Walk MS. Living with MS t-shirts will be distributed to those individuals first, and on a case-by-case basis may be available for individuals diagnosed with MS who were unable to attend the event. Remember, Walk MS event T-shirts will be given to all participants that raise $100. Together We Are Stronger. For more information about the Living with MS program, contact us at walkMS@nmss.org.
