Utahns love 5Ks, 10Ks and charity walks and runs of all sorts, and we're happy to tell you about them, but one of the biggest complaints we get: "You didn't give us enough notice to get a walking team together!"

So that's why I'm posting this heads up on the 2011 Walk MS super early, fool! Plus, this one's really important.

The walk is free, but fundraising is highly encouraged.

2011 Walk MS 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 30 The Gateway, 400 W. 200 South, SLC Click here to register

Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, and often disabling, disease of the central nervous system, and it occurs most often in people between 20 and 50 years old. An ever-increasing number of children are also being diagnosed with the disease. 400,000 Americans live with MS, and every hour someone in the world is diagnosed with it. Utah, in particular, has one of the highest rates of MS in the country (approximately 1 in 300 people).
