Thousands gather to walk against MS

Annual event draws victims, supporters together

The fog was thick but the resolve thicker as thousands turned out for the annual walk against MS.

Persons suffering from multiple sclerosis joined with family, friends and supporters for the Walk MS 2014 Saturday morning at the AT&T Center.

A wall of fog did not keep people from taking steps to battle the disease.

Organizers say the event raises awareness and funds in the fight against MS.

They say people with multiple sclerosis and their families often endure the pain of the disease in silence, and events like the MS walk help bring them out.

San Antonio's Walk MS 2014 was expected to draw more than 3,000 people.

This year's event included a lounge area where MS victims could meet and speak with others about the disease.
