The mission of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is to end the devastating effects of MS, a neurological disorder that often strikes young adults.
In West Texas, there are over a thousand people and their families affected by this disease, and they're hoping for a great turnout this Saturday for the annual MS Walk.
Holly LaFebre, Multiple Sclerosis Walk Coordinator, says, "We use the money for programs locally to help educate those with MS. And also to help try to provide financial assistance through scholarship programs, different things like that. We need to help make life better for those living with ms now."
Local restaurants have donated lots of food and there will be live entertainment and prizes after the walk.
Just go to Frazier Alumni Pavilion on the Texas Tech Campus. If you haven't registered already, you can still do that at 8 a.m. The walk begins at 9 a.m. Saturday. NewsChannel 11's Pete Christy will be there to emcee the event.
