Knoxville Walk MS: Why I’m Walking and How You Can Help


There are several great walks and runs happening in Knoxville the first weekend of April. This year I am walking int the Knoxville Walk MS.

What if we could connect every person living with MS? Every person who cares about someone with MS. Every family affected by it. Everyone who has seen what this disease can do to people. What if we could come together, even one day a year, to show the power of our connections? At Walk MS, our connections become more powerful than the connections MS destroys.

Walk MS  funds raised gives hope to the more than 9,000 people living with MS in our community. The dollars raised support life-changing programs and cutting-edge research. We’ve been walking since 1988 and have raised more than $10 million dollars to help support people living with MS.

Why did I choose Knoxville Walk MS? Because MS is part of my story. I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis almost five years ago. It is a daily challenge and a daily reminder of how precious everyday is. MS has changed my perspective. If I wake up and I can walk it is a good day, no matter what else happens!

If you’ve never seen the Coupon Katie Your Stories you can watch it below. It tells a little bit about how MS contributed to my coupon clipping.

So, why I am sharing all this with you? Because I have a team of walkers, Team Katie, and a goal of raising $1,000!  (I know Coupon Katie is always about saving money but this post is a little different!) You can go here and click on the Donate to Team Katie button on the right to donate to my team and help up reach our goal!  The last option allows you to donate any amount you want! Thanks in advance for helping me meet my goal!
