HCC staff, students lead MS Walk fundraisers

May 11, 2009

Hagerstown Community College staff and students took part in the annual Walk MS on April 18 at Antietam National Battlefield in Sharpsburg.

HCC academic adviser Monica Hutchins first formed her team, "Baby Steps 4 Mommy," in 2004. This year, Hutchins' team consisted of more than 35 participants, which included HCC staff and students, as well as Hutchins' friends and family. Hutchins and her team raised more than $2,000 for Walk MS, a feat that earned them the Top Fundraising Team award for 2009.

Walk MS is held at 11 locations throughout the state of Maryland and is open to the public. There is no fee for participating in Walk MS, but participants are asked to bring donations and/or pledges to help raise money for the 6,500 people in Maryland living with multiple sclerosis.
