It was a packed house at Carousel Center this weekend. But they were not window shopping, they were walking.

More than 500 people participated in the eighth annual Multiple Sclerosis walk. The walk kicked off MS Awareness Month. Participants walked either a three or eight mile course around the mall.

Multiple Sclerosis effects the central nervous system, which includes the brain and spinal cord.

Annette Simiele, Associate Director said, “There’s so much multiple sclerosis in this area that we really need to create awareness of the disease and need to raise funds for our clients so their needs can be met.”

Organizers hoped to raise $35,000 to $45,000 with the walk. All of the money will stay in Central New York.
