EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- A walk through the UW-Eau Claire campus this morning was to raise money for those with Multiple Sclerosis.

The annual Walk MS: Eau Claire was to support the 11,000-plus people in Wisconsin that have been diagnosed with MS. The money will be going toward research to try and find a cure for the disease that disables the nervous system of the body and can cause paralysis and blindness. Those who have MS and participated in the event appreciate the support from the community.

"He's doing the walking with his hooves," Holly Schindler, who has battled MS for 16 years said about her service horse, Mini Mocha. "I'm doing the rolling with the wheelchair, but I wanted to take part of it, specifically here for me to say thank you to everybody that has been with me in my last 16-year journey of MS.”

In 2016, over 20 MS walks in Wisconsin are expected to raise over $1.5 million.
