MS Walk 2010 Part 1

After a weekend filled with cold wind and rain, the day of the walk turned out absolutely beautiful! Our Sunday morning started bright and early as we woke up at about 6:30am to get ready to head out to Minnehaha Park in Minneapolis, MN. Our walk started even earlier as we decided to skip the shuttle and walk the 2 mile stretch to Minnehaha Park!

Once we finally arrived to Minnehaha Falls we got all checked in and took in the sites of all the MS Walk festivities. We fueled our bellies with bannanas, protein bars, coffee and water as we prepared for our walk!We has some celebrity sightings the morning of the walk. We were excited to see the Pillsbury Dough Boy (Hoo Hooooo!) and the Papa John's Pizza Boy!

9am rolled around and the CraniuMS walkers started to congregate! The show of support from everyone that was able to show up to walk to create a world free of MS was incredible. It is because of friends and family that we are able to live with MS everyday and feel supported and loved. It may not always be easy, but having such supportive friends and family in our lives is what gets us through it all!

The atmosphere was filled with positivity and enlightenment as we prepared to walk to create a world free of MS! CraniuMS joined the movement with thousands of other people! Stay tuned for Part 2 of our MS Walk journey as we set out to start the walk and inspire those all around us!
