More than 10,000 people are expected to turn out for Walk MS on April 11 and 12 in seven cities across Western Washington. They walk to raise funds for research, programs and services for people whose lives are affected by multiple sclerosis – a chronic, unpredictable disease of the central nervous system – with a shared goal of one day bringing about a world free of MS. Haggen Northwest Fresh is proud to sponsor Walk MS, and invites our customers, partners and employees to join us in supporting our local community through this event.
The National MS Society, Greater Northwest Chapter hopes to raise a total of $2.1 million through Walk MS events in Washington, Northern Idaho, Alaska and Montana, during its largest annual event.

“Every Walk MS team member has a different story and motivation for participating. Some rally around a friend or relative living with MS. Others walk in memory of one who is with them in spirit. And many deal with the ups and downs of MS in their own lives,” said Chapter President Patty Shepherd-Barnes.
