Kitsap MS walk set for April 12
The Kitsap County MS Walk MS will be Saturday, April 12 in Silverdale.
The National MS Society, Greater Northwest Chapter, has set its sights on raising $34,000 at Walk MS Kitsap County. Together with nearly two dozen other Walk MS events in Washington, Alaska, Northern Idaho and Montana, the Chapter hopes to raise $2.2 million during its largest annual fundraising event.
The Silverdale event will begin at 9 a.m. at Klahowya Secondary School, 7607 NW Newberry Hill Road.
Other Walk MS Washington sites include: Clarkston, Bainbridge Island, Bellingham, Olympia, Snohomish County (Tulalip), South Sound (University Place) and Tri-Cities (Kennewick), Seattle, Spokane and Wenatchee.
“Walk MS is a great way to bring families, friends and co-workers together to enjoy a spring day, have fun and raise much-needed funds for a cause that affects nearly 15,000 people throughout our Chapter community,” said Chapter President Patty Shepherd-Barnes. “I hope everyone will consider joining the MS movement as people from all paths of life come together with a shared goal of creating a world free of MS.”
