More than 7,000 people are expected to raise more than $1 million in donations on April 26 and 27 at two National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s 2014 San Diego County Credit Union Walk MS fundraisers.
The first San Diego County Credit Union Walk MS will be held on Saturday, April 26, at NTC Park at Liberty Station in Point Loma. About 3,500 people are expected to walk a 3-mile route along San Diego Bay and help raise about $525,000 in donations. Check-in will begin at 7 a.m., and the walk will begin at 8 a.m.
A second San Diego County Credit Union Walk MS will be held Sunday, April 27, at Legoland California in Carlsbad. About 3,500 people are expected to walk a 1.5- mile route inside the theme park and help raise about $500,000 in donations. Check-in will begin at 6:30 a.m., and the walk will begin at 7:30 a.m. Legoland will be open only to Walk MS walkers during the walk. At the conclusion of Walk MS, Legoland will open at its regularly scheduled time of 10 a.m., and all walkers will be invited to re-enter the theme park at a discounted admission price.
Admission is free to attend Walk MS and there is no cost to be a walker at either event. On-site registration is available. Event information is available at www.MSWalk.com. Proceeds will benefit MS research, and programs and services for people with MS, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and body.
