[April 15, 2009]  Plans for the 10th Lincoln MS Walk at Kickapoo Creek Park, on May 3, are nearing completion and, according to Nancy Ireland, chairwoman for the event, "all we need now is a warm, calm day and lots of walkers." Check-in begins at 12:30 p.m.; team pictures will be taken at 1; and the walk starts at 1:30.

HardwareThe day's events include music provided by Greg and Joe Hackett -- Music 4U DJ Service. Susan Hanger will be on hand to do face painting for the kiddies, and participants will have the opportunity to bid on some really neat silent auction items donated by individuals and merchants. Following the walk, there will be a drawing for some prizes, and winners of the silent auction will be announced.

The walk route is 1 1/2 miles around beautiful Kickapoo Creek Park, and participants have the option of walking once or twice around. There will be assistance for anyone who is unable to complete the route.

It's not easy to pinpoint the cause of multiple sclerosis, and so far the cure rests on continued research. Every hour, another person is diagnosed with MS. For 20,000 people in Illinois and some 400,000 nationwide, that hour has already arrived. Each case of multiple sclerosis, a chronic and often disabling disease, is as unique as the people who have it.

People may register for the walk by calling 732-2339 or online at Donations may be sent to Lincoln MS Walk, 23 Tulip Drive, Lincoln, IL 62656.
