Citizens are invited to join friends and neighbors for Walk MS: Clarksville 2020 on April 18 in Liberty Park.

Walk MS: Clarksville is an opportunity for people living with multiple sclerosis and those who care about them to connect, join together and be inspired.

To register to walk or to make a donation, visit walkms.org or the Walk MS: Clarksville 2020 page at bit.ly/2UIDcZC. 

The walk will gather at Liberty Park’s Victory Pavilion at 1188 Cumberland Drive in Clarksville. The site will open at 9 a.m.m and the walk will begin at 10 a.m. One-mile and three-mile fully accessible routes are available, and the walk is open to all ages.

Since 1988, hundreds of thousands of people have taken part in Walk MS events across the country, raising critical funds and awareness for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. 

Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and body. Advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving closer to a world free of the disease. 

A Clarksville MS self-help group meets on the third Thursday of each month at 5 p.m.  at the Clarksville Public Library at 350 Pageant Lane in Clarksville. For more information, contact Michelle Dickison at kmichelle.dickison@gmail or 308-765-1695.
