If you live near San Luis Obispo, located on the Central Coast of beautiful California, and you’d like to walk for a good cause, you’ll want to check out the MS Walk this weekend!  I learned about the MS Walk from another mom in my local MOMS Club (Moms Offering Moms Support).  Here’s what Caroline says, “I’ve been walking for the past 3 years and have a blast every year!  It’s not a long walk, and is stroller friendly.  We start and finish at the Mission Plaza where upon finishing, everyone gets medallions and have food, entertainment, and giveaways.”

It is FREE to walk!  You can either register online or register at the race.  If you aren’t able to participate in the walk, but would like to donate to the cause, please visit our MOMS Club Team Page HERE.

Here’s more info…
