Multiple Sclerosis is a serious progressive disease of the central nervous system, occurring mainly in young adults and thought to be caused by a malfunction of the immune system. It leads to the loss of myelin in the brain or spinal cord and causes muscle weakness, poor eyesight, slowed speech, and some inability to move.

Come enjoy a leisurely run, walk, or ride through the beautiful foothills, visit our local establishments, and experience the rich history and atmosphere of our historic towns.

Remember, mark your calendar for the Run, Walk, or Bike-A-Thon, Saturday, May 7, 2022.
