Walk MS: Terre Haute

2020 Walk MS: Terre Haute

IMPORTANT UPDATE:

The National MS Society is closely monitoring the latest developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic and we are taking proactive steps to protect people affected by MS, our event participants and the broader MS community. Based on recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we will not host Walk MS events through June in person. Instead, we will continue to fuel life-changing breakthroughs for people affected by MS through an exciting virtual Walk MS experience.

You can still make a difference through #virtualwalkMS:

  • Celebrate Your Walk, Your Way – Whether it’s on a home treadmill or a walk around the block with your dog, on your site’s Walk MS date (or whenever it’s convenient for you) put on your orange or your favorite National MS Society volunteer t-shirt and show us how you’re celebrating by using #virtualwalkMS on social media to share photos and more.
  • While we cannot gather in person, if you would still like to contribute to Walk MS, volunteers have the ability to support through fundraising or donating. We will continue to fundraise for Walk MS virtually to meet our goals and support people living with multiple sclerosis.
  • Call, text or FaceTime a person affected by MS in your life.  Create a safe opportunity for connection. After all, we’re all in this together!

If you have any questions, please contact Jessica Blosberg at [email protected].
