Leaving fears of cold, wet weather aside; hundreds took off for the MS Walk in Pueblo Saturday morning. Luckily the walkers got a window of good weather to enjoy. About 200 people made it out in all. News 5's Rob Quirk joined in again too.
These walks help raise money for local groups continuing the fight against multiple sclerosis.
Melissa McMath's mother has MS, and she has rheumatoid arthritis; she comes out to walks like the one in Pueblo to help her family and others in a similar spot. She knows how tough of a fight it is.
"We're just staying strong, staying faithful, pray a lot and try to help each other," says McMath as she takes off on her walk.
News 5 is proud to help sponsor these walks. Between the Pueblo walk and the one the weekend before in Colorado Springs, organizers guess that about 1,400 walkers came out.
