It's almost time for this year's Walk MS event!

Walk MS is an annual event sponsored by the Mid America Chapter of the National MS Society. The goal is to raise money to support multiple sclerosis research.

When: Saturday, April 30
Time: 9 a.m. registration, 10 a.m. walk begins
Location: Sunflower Elementary, Lawrence

We'd love for you to join our team! Sandbar walkers had a great time last year, and after the walk we had an after party at the Sandbar.

Our team goal this year is $5000. All walkers who raise at least $100 will earn an official Walk MS T-shirt. For extra incentive, everyone who raises at least $25 will get a free Sandbar T-shirt.

There are lots of prize opportunities along the way, both from the MS Society as well as from our team. Last year we gave out several gift cards to team members and people who made donations.

It's easy to raise money. The Walk MS website lets you send e-mails to friends and family, and you can also install a Facebook application to share information with your friends.

Unfortunately, those of us at the Sandbar know many people who are either suffering from MS or have family or friends diagnosed with it. Rockstar bartender Danny has been raising money for the MS Society for years through Bike MS; he's riding again this year and you can support him here.

Join our team today!
