Sunday is an important day in the fight against multiple sclerosis, as 11 sites all across the state hosted Walk MS events.

ABC7 meteorologist Jerry Taft helped get one in Grant Park rolling Sunday morning.

Donations raised directly help people affected by MS through support programs and cutting edge research. MS is often a disabling disease of the central nervous system.

Last year, more than $2.7 million was raised in Illinois.
