Between October 17th through the 19th in 2008, more than 80 souls gathered in Door County for the inaugural MS Challenge Walk in Wisconsin. Their goal: walk FIFTY MILES to raise funds for MS-related research and programs both in Wisconsin and all across the world. Steph Ford, the Team N3kk1d volunteer coordinator, put on her walking shoes, dragged along her husband, and raised more than two thousand dollars for the MS Society in the process. Check out our photos, as well as our short video montage. (Movie clip is eight minutes in length and requires Windows Media Player)
