MS Walk Raises $1,173 for Scholarships 

By: Trevon Alexander

     On Saturday, November 4, Chloé Wagner held a Multiple Sclerosis Walk on the Richmond High School track to raise money and donate Scholarships to different high school students living with MS. This walk was done as part of her 20% Project for leadership class. The event included a 2.5K walk for $10, and a 5K walk for $20.

     Chloé ended up raising $1,173! “The turnout was great! I ended up reaching my goal and going over it, I was happy to see how many people supported me,” Chloé said.

     “I chose this because after I was diagnosed I started to learn more about the disease and how it can affect you. I learned that a lot of kids my age have it worse than I do. Getting a Scholarship is hard enough and this is a disease that makes it more difficult because it has an impact on your brain and can cause serious damage,” Chloé elaborated. Chloé’s event was a success and she can now donate an educational opportunity to those students with MS, thanks to her hard work and dedication along with all the supporters.

     MS is a disease in which the immune system eats away at the protective covering of nerves.
