A walk to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society will take place on April 8 at Reston Town Center.
The event, called “Walk MS”, is a fundraiser for the organization, which its website says aims to create a “a world free of multiple sclerosis.”
Multiple sclerosis is a neurological disease that attacks the brain and spinal cord and often leads to the disability of young adults.
Individuals interested in participating can register by calling 855-372-1131 or by emailing [email protected].
Organizers expect a turnout of 800 people. A fundraising goal of $200,000 has been set. The walk is expected to begin at 10 a.m.
The event’s lead sponsor is Sanofi Genzyme, a biotechnology company based in Massachusetts.
