Walk MS: Baton Rouge May 4th

Walk MS: Baton Rouge is an annual walk event held every spring to raise funds and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. The walk has a 1 mile and 3 mile option for participants to choose from with rest stops along the long route. Sponsors and vendors are set up at the event, giving away promotional items and information about their companies. There is music by a local DJ and food on-site, usually donated by local restaurants. The funds raised go to research for Multiple Sclerosis to determine a cause of the disease and to develop better treatment for those affected; education about how it can affect a person’s life, family, and friends; and programs and services for those living with MS and their caregivers.
