Walk MS on Saturday will bring together people from across the South Sound to support those living with multiple sclerosis.
The walk will be one of hundreds nationwide to raise money to support research and local programs that serve those with MS. The local goal is to raise $160,000.
The event will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Pierce County Environmental Service Building, 9850 64th St. W. in University Place.
The walk will start at 10 a.m., rain or shine. It will begin and end at the Environmental Service Building and cover a 2-mile paved path.
Anyone can participate, and registration is free. More information is available at MSnorthwest.org.
