On Sunday, May 1, hundreds will walk through the streets of Chicago to help raise funds for the Greater Illinois Chapter of the National MS Society.

The Greater Illinois Chapter serves more than 20,000 people and their families living with MS in Illinois. Donations raised for Walk MS directly help people affected by MS through support programs and cutting-edge research. ABC7 is happy to sponsor this event, and Jerry Taft is joining walkers.
