HCC Staff and Students join Walk MS

(May 1, 2009) - Hagerstown Community College staff and students recently took part in the annual Walk MS held on Sat., April 18, 2009, at Antietam Battlefield in Sharpsburg.

HCC academic advisor 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 $2000 for Walk MS, a feat which earned them the Top Fundraising Team award for 2009.

Walk MS is held at 11 different 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.
