Still time to register for the April 22, 2017 2017 Walk MS: Westminster event

Still time to register for the April 22, 2017 2017 Walk MS: Westminster event

There is still time to participate in the 2017 Walk MS: Westminster event scheduled for Saturday, April 22. In fact, there will be time up until 9 a.m. Saturday, when the walk begins.

"We are not going to turn people away if they want to walk for us and raise money for us," said Katie Boothroyd, director of internal communications for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. "We're excited to have them."

Of course, you can also sign up in advance online, and for free, according to Samantha Wolfe, fundraising and event manager for the Westminster walk. People are encouraged to come out and participate whether or not they will be donating, although people can donate in person or online.

"You can walk and not donate, you can donate and not walk, you can walk and donate — it's tailored for anyone to partake in any way they feel comfortable," Wolfe said. "That extends to both a 3- and 1-mile walking loop for those that do choose to walk."

Day-of registration will begin at 8 a.m. Wolfe said, as breakfast is served and a DJ plays music; the walk itself will begin at 9 a.m. After the walk, snacks and more music will be offered.
