Strolling to fight MS

Ed Kawamura literally lost the sole of his shoes, walking with more than 200 walkers who came out for the Walk MS, or on Kauai, Sunset Stroll Saturday at Ke Ala Hele Makala‘e, or the Kapaa multi-use path.

Walk MS connects people living with Multiple Sclerosis and those who care about them, said Ron Wiley who has been supporting the Walk MS for many years.

Mary Kay Hertog said the reason why we do the sunset stroll is because people with MS are sensitive to the sun so by walking in the evening, the event affects them less.

The Kauai group raised more than $44,000 toward its goal of $60,000. Candice Schwalbach, director of the National MS Society, Pacific South Coast Chapter, Hawaii office, said there will be more opportunities for Kauai to reach its target.
