To the editor:
Kickapoo Creek Park was a perfect setting for the
annual Lincoln MS Walk held on Sunday, May 4. Don Hellman and his
staff do an awesome job with the grounds. The sun shined brightly
for the 200-plus walkers who joined together and raised a
record-breaking $26,000 to help fund research and provide programs
and services for families impacted by multiple sclerosis. Local
services include a support group that meets the second Monday of
each month at ALMH, Conference Room A (lower level). Meeting time is

We are still accepting donations until May 23; and checks,
payable to National MS Society, can be mailed to Lincoln MS Walk, 23

My heartfelt thanks to each and every person involved in the
success of the walk -- committee members, the walkers, teams,
businesses who sponsored the walk and donated items for prizes and
silent auction, and those who provided food and drinks for the
walkers. Your involvement and generosity is very much appreciated.
Music provided by Music 4U DJ Service added to the festive
atmosphere as well as announcing the winners of donated prizes and
silent auction items.
AirTran Airways at the Central Illinois Regional Airport in
Bloomington donated two round-trip tickets to one of the MS patients
at the walk. Janet Schall was the recipient. We thank AirTran for
their continued generosity.
Living in such a caring community is indeed a blessing! The MS
Walk was successful because of the dedication of everyone involved.
The Lincoln MS Walk Committee
