Record-breaking multiple sclerosis fundraiser to aid research and families

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 7 p.m.

In the picture, Bob Borowiak (with blue cap and green bandana) is carrying the flag. His daughter, Jo Beth (wearing white shirt), is beside him waving. They started the walk through Kickapoo Creek Park.

We are still accepting donations until May 23; and checks, payable to National MS Society, can be mailed to Lincoln MS Walk, 23 Tulip Drive, Lincoln, IL 62656. Your support is appreciated by those living with MS.

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
Nancy Ireland, Chairperson
