Multiple Sclerosis affects thousands of people nationwide, but on Sunday, May 6, hundreds came together at 11 MS Walks all across the Chicago area and beyond to try and change that.

ABC7 was a sponsor, and our meteorologist Jerry Taft led off the walk in Grant Park (link: http://walkild.nationalmssociety.org/site/TR?pg=entry&fr_id=17987). Jerry interviewed Bridget Barham, Captain of MS Walk Team Bridget's Brigade. Proceeds go to The Greater Illinois Chapter of the National MS Society
