Step by step, folks in the Quad Cities walked together to help find a cure for multiple sclerosis.
Hundreds turned out Saturday morning for the 3 mile MS walk at veterans memorial park in Bettendorf.
Our own Steve Long and Chloe Morroni emceed the event.
Angela Baker was diagnosed with MS in 2002 and has spent the past few years trying to help rally those behind raising money for the cause.
"There is a tremendous amount of research going on," says Baker. "We want to figure out how are people being affected by MS and what can we do to make their lives easier and ultimately finding the cure."
More than 700 people took part in the walk, raising $50,000 for MS research.
