MASON CITY, Iowa - On April 21st hundreds of people will walk, in the hopes of ending Multiple Sclerosis.
It’s a disease that affects more than 2 million people throughout the world.
Jodee Bryant is secretary at Newman Catholic Elementary, a grandma of five, and one of 400,000 thousand battling MS every day.
“It's not too bad when I’m by myself, it’s harder to be around the grandkids. You can't be as active as you want to be,” Bryant said.
Bryant is slowly finding it harder and harder to walk, watching her left side getting weaker.
“You can't really keep up with them you just watch and you can't be as active can't be as involved,” Bryant said.
Her grandkids are supporting her doing the MS walk once again this year. For Bryant the walk was something she never thought to do, now it’s becoming an event helping her realize more and more she's not alone.
“I did the short route my daughter did the long route, I did the short walk and I’m ready to do it this Saturday,” Bryant said.
This year's MS walk in Mason City is this Saturday and starts at 10 in the morning at the Southbridge Mall. Rochester will be having its Walk for MS on Saturday, May 5th at Soldiers Field Veterans Memorial Park.
