Multiple sclerosis walk in Rothschild raises awareness, money

Posted:
ROTHSCHILD (WAOW) -- More than 600 people got out to raise money and awareness for multiple sclerosis Saturday.

The Wisconsin chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society organized a walk for the disease. It was at the Patriot Center in Rothschild.

People living with MS and supporters participated in the 1.6 mile walk.

Organizers say an event like this has a powerful impact on the walkers.

"It's a great rallying point for everyone with MS to come together and show support for each other," said Nicole Benishek, a member of the Walk MS Wausau Committee.

Organizers say they have raised more than $35,000.
