Together, we are accelerating progress in making life-changing breakthroughs so that each person with MS can live her or his best life.” 

More than 250 people are expected to raise more than $15,000 at Walk MS: Platteville on April 23.

In 2016 alone, nearly 300,000 people at more than 550 locations across the country walked to create a world free of MS, raising nearly $50 million.
