The Second Annual MS Walk lured hundreds of folks from around Eastern Carolina to East Carolina University Saturday. Their goals -- to beat Multiple Sclerosis and to beat the rain.
They took off during the windy, but partly sunny morning hours. Walkers could choose between a five mile trek or a one mile stroll. The money these walkers raised helps to fight MS, a disease that attacks the central nervous system. About 3800 people in Eastern Carolina have MS. But, the hope is to cure it, and organizers hope the annual walk in Greenville continues to grow. We won't know how much money the MS walk made until June. Meteorologist Jamie Arnold and Heather King both took part in Saturday's walk to fight MS.
