MS Walk from a participant perspective

There’s a walk for Multiple Sclerosis in Door County that has picked up the pace with participant turnout in recent years, but one annual participant says she’d like it to grow faster. The MS challenge walk is a three-day walk in Door County from September 24-26 that starts in Ellison Bay.


Door County resident Pat Heller has been involved in the Challenge Walk MS for 13 years with her husband, Tom. If you participate your competitive itch will be scratched in a variety of ways, one of which is fundraising. Heller talks about her fundraising team, “Multiple Screwballs,” and the high goals they set. 



Heller enjoys the event's high retention rate, saying it’s built a camaraderie that newcomers quickly find themselves a part of. A byproduct of the family atmosphere is the decorative wardrobe participants and volunteers wear. Some will wear orange, which is the official MS color. The event hits home for Heller and other participants, many of whom either have MS or are close with someone who does. More information on the event can be found at this link
