50-mile walk for MS underway in Door County

Multiple Sclerosis touches the lives of many, and 165 participants took part in day two of the three-day MS Challenge Walk in Door County on Saturday. The three-day walk allows participants, many of which live with the condition or have a loved one who does, to walk up to 50 miles over that span. The walkers departed from Ellison Bay, and $244,000 was raised by participants to fight against MS. 

 

One of the walkers, Sandra O’Laire, said the walk to her is about family members of hers who live with the condition. O'Laire thought the weather was perfect, especially compared to the last time the walk was held in-person, which was 2019 when they battled some rainy conditions. O’Laire also added that doing the 50 mile-walk together after 2020’s virtual walk was a nice change. 

 

 

O’Laire also found it nice to see familiar faces at the Challenge Walk.
