Walk MS 2014 drew thousands of people to The Gateway mall Saturday, united in the common goal of curing multiple sclerosis and helping those who are living with it.
"Events like Walk MS allow us to not only elevate the awareness of this disease that affects our community, but also for those who may be living with MS and unaware that our chapter is here to help them in a variety of ways," said Becky Lyttle, vice president of Community Development for the Utah-Southern Idaho Chapter of the National MS Society.
An estimated 400,000 Americans are living with MS. Utah has one of the highest incidence rates in the U.S., with 1 in 300 individuals affected.
