WALK-A-THON FOR MS SCHEDULED APRIL 20

Several walk-a-thons are being held around the state to help raise funds for research into multiple sclerosis, a disease that randomly attacks the nervous system.

The MS Walk for Multiple Sclerosis in Tupelo will be April 20 from 8 a.m. until noon, said Janet Celnar. Residents interested in making the walk will seek donations for walking any distance they set, she said.

Walkers can go to the North Mississippi Medical Center walking track in Tupelo at anytime during the four hours, she said. In 1995 the average walker raised $115. There also will be prizes awarded to the walkers.

For more information about the walk, contact Celnar at (601) 862-9043 or the state chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis at 1-800-FIGHT MS.
