Calling all Delawareans! If you know someone with MS, now is a good time to come out and support them.

Walk MS is a rallying point, a time and a place for us to stand together and to be together — to help raise critical funds that support cutting edge research, drive change through advocacy, facilitate professional education and provide programs and services to help people with MS move their lives forward.

On Saturday, April 16, Two MS Walks are happening.

Wilmington Riverfront (Starts 8 A.M.)

Historic Dover Walk (starts 9 A.M.): 

We will be supporting good friend and Creative Image Associates Designer Lindsey McCloskey in Dover:
