An estimated 1,600 people are expected to raise more than $245,000 at Walk MS: Kansas City on April 7 at Kansas Speedway, 400 Speedway Blvd, Kansas City, Kan. The Speedway opens at 8:30 a.m.; with the walk beginning at 10 a.m.

Walk MS is an opportunity for people to come together with friends, loved ones and co-workers to fundraise, connect and advocate for people affected by MS. Each dollar raised is one step closer to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s goal – a world free of MS. Since its inception in 1988, Walk MS has cumulatively raised more than $1 billion.

Multiple sclerosis attacks the brain and spinal cord, and it is the most common neurological disease leading to disability in young adults. The National MS Society is a gathering place for people with MS, their family and loved ones, healthcare providers, volunteers, donors, fundraisers, advocates, community leaders and all those that seek a world free of MS.
