Plans are in the works for the third annual McMinnville MS Walk on Oct. 12 at the McMinnville Civic Center pavilion and walking trail.“Walking for MS is a simple, but incredibly powerful way for you to share in the hope for the future,” said event coordinator Heather George. “It helps raise critical funds that support cutting-edge research, drives change through advocacy, facilitates professional education and provides programs and services to help people with MS move their lives forward.”Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system, which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves.
