LACONIA — The first time Army Capt. Alicia Burrows took part in an Multiple Sclerosis walk, it was in the dark, in the desert, in Kuwait. She was stationed there, but wanted to participate in the MS Challenge Walk, in honor of her mother Suzanne who has MS. She walked/ran on a track on the base overnight, coinciding with the walk on Cape Cod. Four years later and more than 6,100 miles closer, Burrows, now stationed in New York, will join her mother, father, sister, and brother for Walk MS Laconia on Saturday, May 10.
"I am proud of all my kids," said Suzanne Burrows. But it was her daughter's determination to help the cause, despite being so far away, that inspired Suzanne to join the Laconia walk two years ago. Her team, Suzie's Slow Pokes, has raised more than $11,000 in two walks.
This year's Laconia walk will take place at 10 a.m., starting from Opechee Park.
Suzanne said the National MS Society was there for her when she needed help making her bathroom handicapped accessible, now she wants to return the favor.
"Hopefully this is giving back -- putting some money back in the coffers."
The Walk MS Laconia follows a five-mile route.
MS (multiple sclerosis) interrupts the flow of information between the brain and body and can stop people from moving forward in their lives. It is typically diagnosed between ages 20 and 50, but teenagers and even young children can have the disease. More than 2,500 individuals and families are affected by MS in New Hampshire alone.
Those interested in taking part in the walk can access information and sign up online at walkMSgne.org
