SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) – An estimated 4,000 Utahns came together Saturday for the 24th annual MS walk to help find a cure.

The National MS Society estimates one in 300 people in Utah are living with MS. One of them is 32 year-old Lisa Liddell who was diagnosed two years ago.

“Sometimes I lose vision, sometimes I lose the feeling in my legs, I get numbness, tingling,” she said. “It's hard, it's a life-changing experience.”

Money raised from the walk goes to pay for services for Utahns impacted by MS and for therapy research.

“It’s an exciting time in MS research because we now have 10 therapies that'll slow the progression of MS, but they only work for some people so it's important that we keep the fundraising going,” said Juliann Fritz, National MS Society.

Utah's MS Society has raised over $185,000 for research, but still need to reach their goal of $233,000 by May 27.
