To the editor:
After a couple of days of high wind and predicted
rain, we had cool, sunny weather for the 11th annual MS Walk in
Lincoln. Over 260 people gathered at Kickapoo Creek Park to support
this cause. The Lincoln MS Walk held on May 2 brought in $28,000,
with money still coming in. We will continue to accept donations
until May 28. Checks, made payable to the National MS Society, can
be sent to me at 23 Tulip Drive, Lincoln, IL 62656. Your support
will be greatly appreciated and is vital to those living with MS.
Proceeds from the walk will be used to provide programs and
services for Illinois families impacted by multiple sclerosis and
funding for vital research into the cause and cure. Progress is
being made in treatment but a cure has yet to be found.
I want to thank everyone who contributed to the success of the
walk in any way: the committee, the walkers, the team members, the
donors, the businesses that sponsored the walk and provided items
for prizes and the silent auction, and those who donated food items
and drinks for the walkers at the event. Special thanks go to Greg
and Joe Hackett (Music 4 U DJ Service), who provided music and
announcements during the event, and Heather McAfee, who did face

People who have participated in the MS Walk since its inception
11 years ago were recognized for their long-standing support. Among
them were committee members Gene and Toni McDonald and Jeanne
Handlin, who led this year's walk. Team captains were also
recognized for their efforts in organizing their respective teams.
The caring spirit is indeed evident as shown by the strong
support here in Lincoln, Logan County and beyond. The success of
this event happened because of you!
Thank you very much!
