It’s time to lace up those tennis shoes or pull on the hiking boots.

Bainbridge’s annual three-mile Walk MS fundraiser is coming next weekend.

The fun but worthy benefit will take over downtown Winslow Saturday, April 12 for another year of the community coming together to fight multiple sclerosis.

The event will include face painting, live music, Pegasus Coffee, BonBon chocolates and lunch by Pan d’Amore Artisan Bakery.

Participants will also be able to enjoy vegetable chili made by the Soup’r Burger crew and Lari Seltzer of Pretty Stick.

Already planning on participating? Great! Not yet committed? Well, get a move on and stop by early Saturday to sign up. Registration for this year’s National MS Society walk opens at 9 a.m.

The program will begin at 9:30 a.m. and walkers will begin their trek at 10 a.m.

The event is kid-friendly and participants can register as individuals, teams or staff volunteers.

Don’t want to walk, but want to volunteer along the route? The walk can always use more helpers, as well.

To sign up, visit www.walkMS.org and select Bainbridge Island, call 800-344-4867 or email jessica.kurtz@nmss.org.
