The Best of Walk MS 2021

By The National MS Society
June 25, 2021

Coming off the heels of one of the most challenging and unforgettable years, Walk MS 2021 proved nothing will stop the MS community from moving closer to a cure. We saw people come together in new and exciting ways to show the world that together, we are stronger than this disease.

To celebrate the best of our walkers, we perused social media to round up some of the most fun, moving and creative ways they kept us moving forward!
