MS Walk success continues          Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

On a beautiful spring day in May, scores of walkers, workers, volunteers and interested friends joined together at Kickapoo Creek Park in Lincoln for the seventh annual MS Walk. Many businesses and individuals sponsored various aspects of the walk with donations of food, beverages, prizes and money.

As the chairman and the committee, we are most grateful for all the support that has been given to the Lincoln walk over the years. To date, over $100,000 has been raised. This money is used to help end the devastating effects of multiple sclerosis. It supports research, along with local programs and services that enhance the lives of people with MS. A local support group has been formed and will receive a donation from this walk to help with their work.

Again, our deepest gratitude to all who helped in any way to make this another successful walk.

Nancy Ireland, chairman

Gene and Toni McDonald, Bob and Carolyn Borowiak, Donna Miles, Jim Ireland, Donita Biggs, Brenda Centers, Jeanne Handlin -- committee members
