Never underestimate the younger generation! c0ncr373 cru5h3r5 team captain Heather enlisted a half-dozen of her pals at Mulick Park Elementary and returned to Walk MS Grand Rapids at Aquinas College with renewed vigor. Not only did the kids raise more than $500 for the fight against multiple sclerosis, but they were also asked personally by the MS Society to cheer at the finish line… and cheer they did! The day was surprisingly warm, sunny, and perfect for a stroll through the beautiful Fulton Heights neighborhood and Aquinas campus. Check out the photos and video below for proof!
