Camp Richardson will host MS Walk

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s MS Walk is set for May 19 at Camp Richardson Resort.

Thousands of people from across the United States take part in MS walks to raise money for multiple sclerosis research.

Anyone may participate in the walk and teams are encouraged. To enter the event, fill out and send in a registration form or call (775) 329-7180 to enroll over the phone.

Next, start collecting pledges. Donations may be turned in the day of the event. To be eligible for prizes, all pledges must be turned in one month from the date of the walk. Prizes include a $500 mall gift certificate or a trip to the National MS Walk of Champions, official MS Walk sweatshirts, and much more, depending on how much money walkers raise. There will also be team prizes.

The MS Walk trudges on rain or shine, so pull those walking shoes out of winter’s closet and get ready. Participants may opt to walk three or five miles. Rest stops will be placed throughout the course with free food and beverages. Other perks include a festive finish line celebration, first aid and restroom facilities and special vehicles to transport tired walkers.

It takes more than just actual walkers to make the MS Walk successful. Volunteers also are needed to make sure the event is fun, safe and organized. Volunteers help with registration, host rest stops, drive support vehicles and much more. To volunteer, call the above listed number or dial toll-free at 1(800) 800-9255.
