About 260 people begin the three-day, 50-mile walk from the Flower Fields in Carlsbad to downtown San Diego in a $1.2 million fund-raiser for multiple sclerosis research. Roughly one-fourth of the walkers, 65 of the 260 walkers at the ninth annual Southern California Challenge Walk MS, have multiple sclerosis, a chronic, unpredictable and disabling disease of the central nervous system with no known cause, cure or prevention. The Challenge Walk MS was presented by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Carlsbad-based Pacific South Coast Chapter. The walkers traveled from 17 states and throughout Southern and Northern California, as well as Mexico, to participate. Courtesy photo
