Walk MS: Chicago was held Sunday at Soldier Field. (WLS)

Together, the greater Illinois area is expected to raise more than $2 million cumulatively with eight other Walk MS events across Illinois on April 29 and May 6.

Multiple sclerosis is a neurological disease that attacks the brain and spinal cord.

Walk MS is an opportunity for people to come together with friends, loved ones and co-workers to fundraise, connect and advocate for people affected by MS. This event is a real rallying point for the MS community.

Walk MS Director Rob Multerer sat down with ABC7 to talk about Walk MS events in the Illinois area.

Three of four walkers are women and the majority are ages 25 - 54. These demographics closely correspond to the profile of people who live with MS.
