Bakersfield has a new color on its horizon: orange. It's the "Color for a Cure", a movement to draw attention to multiple sclerosis (MS), a disease that interrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body, and can stop people from moving. With more than 600 people in Kern County living with MS, March 2 through 8 marks the recognition of MS Awareness Week. Several events will take place throughout the county including the tying of orange ribbons around the trees along the intersection of Truxtun and Chester Avenues.

On Saturday, March 28, the National MS Society will host Walk MS 2009 at Yokuts Park with opening ceremonies at 8:30 a.m. and the Walk at 9:00 a.m. Participants will walk, roll, or stroll either a 5K or 1.5K family-friendly course.

For more information on MS Walk 2009 or MS Awareness Week, visit www.walkMSsocal.org or call 321-9512. If you would like to learn more about MS, please call 1-800-FIGHT-MS.
