LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – Multiple sclerosis, also known as MS, is an auto-immune disorder that affects millions of people across the nation, more than 18,000 in Michigan.
And today thousands of people walked for them.
The “Walk MS” event kicked off at Cooley Law School Stadium in downtown Lansing.
MS is a disease that disables the central nervous system.
Right now there is no cure but researchers are working to find one.
The people who walked today included people who are living with MS, as well as those who care about them.
The event raised more than $100,000 that will help several local programs and, of course, find a cure.
“There’s so much hope to be had, from the chapter here in Michigan, where MS effects so many people. There’s so many that are coming out in droves, fighting,” said musician David Osmond.
