Charlotte MS Walk to step off next weekend

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The money raised through Walk MS assists the more than 15,000 people living with multiple sclerosis in the area that's covered by the Greater Carolinas chapter.

Sixty percent of the money raised goes to programs, services and advocacy.  The rest supports national research to find a cause and cure for MS.

Charlotte's walk will begin at 9am on May 19th in Symphony Park at South Park.

Craig Lynch, a national board member of the MS Society, visited WBTV to talk about this year's walk.
