It was cool, but sunny on Sunday for hundreds that took to the Lakewalk in Duluth for the Multiple Sclerosis Walk.

The walkers stepped up to a four mile trek with donations from sponsors that will go to fund research on multiple sclerosis and support those suffering with the disease in the region.

Organizers said the turnout was over double what they expected.

“We had 177 registered, but I think there's probably about 500 registered. We've run out of envelopes and everything so it's a good turnout today,” Organizer Stacie Oakland said.

The event was expected to raise nearly $30,000, and another fundraiser, the MS 150 Bike ride from Duluth to the Twin Cities, is scheduled for June 6.
