Sarah Hwang invites you to Walk MS 


For the first time since the start of the pandemic, Walk MS will be hosting an in-person walk-a-thon in Milwaukee on May 1 through the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Sarah Hwang, a Milwaukee resident who was diagnosed with MS in 1999, encourages community members to join her team, Hwang’s Wok-ers, or to start their own. 

“All of these funds go to the MS society for research, for programming, and people living with MS truly can feel the impact every single day from the donations that people are giving,” Hwang said. 

In prior years, Hwang has held a fundraising event called “Wok Hard to Fight MS,” which would feature a Chinese pop-up restaurant hosted at Congregation Sinai. Though the continued risk of COVID-19 and personal challenges have prevented this fundraising event from occurring this year, Hwang hopes to fundraise $10,000 through donations to her team and has already raised more than $6,000.  

“Finding a cure is so important and the treatments that are out there that help prevent progression are important,” Hwang said. “The programs that the MS society provides people so they can live really full lives is also so important.” 

The walk will take place at the Summerfest Grounds, South Gate. The site opens at 8 a.m. and the walk begins at 10 a.m. Community members can sign up for a team or donate at
