A five-mile charity walk at Antietam National Battlefield Saturday raised $31,000 for the local and national chapters of the Multiple Sclerosis Society, walk officials said.
Lisa Scrivener, who was in charge of registering the walkers, said about 282 people showed up to participate in the event, which lasted about four hours.
"It was festive," she said. "We had a good time."
Scrivener's brother-in-law, Bill Scrivener, was diagnosed with MS in 1991.
She said a lot of the participants were family members of people affected by MS, a chronic disease of the central nervous system, while other walkers had MS in various forms.
