3-day, 50-mile walk raises money for multiple sclerosis

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Hundreds of people embarked on a three-day, 50-mile journey along San Diego's coastline Friday to raise money in the battle against multiple sclerosis.

The Southern California Challenge Walk MS kicked off Friday at the Carlsbad Flower Fields. Participants walked 20 miles to Del Mar. Everyone taking part in the three-day event raised at least $2,500 dollars for the cause.

"We're walking because for me it's personal. My husband has MS and I hate this disease," one participant said.

On Saturday, walkers will put in another 20 miles, this time walking from Del Mar to Mission Beach.

The Challenge Walk MS wraps up on Sunday with a 10-mile walk from Mission Beach to downtown San Diego.
