The skies cleared May 30 for the annual Delaware Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Walk MS 2014.

Delaware's statewide Walk MS is a nationwide rallying point 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.

More than 300 loved ones, friends, and neighbors were hosted by Baywood Greens for the Sussex Walk MS.
