Knoxville (WVLT) -- The Mid-South Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society put on this years MS Walk along the Tennessee River on Volunteer Landing.
Many turned out to the scenic course, having the option of walking three or six miles.
Some of the walkers came out to support friends with the disease, while others did it to support the society that helps them.
"Last September I was diagnosed with MS," said Emily Elliot, "so this is my first time out and I just figured I would raise some money and get some of my friends and family out."
According to the Mid-South chapter, about 7,200 local residents have MS.
