Walkers' view of the MS Challenge Walk

Written by on September 23, 2010 at 1:25 pm

The first photos of the MS Challenge Walk were posted last week, courtesy professional photographer Andrew Child. Since then, hundreds more pictures have surfaced online, posted by those who walked the walk. Each of these eight photographers have graciously allowed us to share their albums with you here on our blog. Click any one of the images below (the photographer's name and team are given in the caption) to visit their larger album. All are located on Facebook, except for Ken Gagne's and Bonnie's Believers'; no album requires registration or additional software to view.

Do you have photos that aren't listed here? Please contact us with your details!

Ken joined the MS Challenge Walk in 2005, more than a decade after his mother was diagnosed. After walking for three years and 150 miles, he switched to the support crew and now rides his bicycle along the trail, providing whatever encouragement (and snacks!) he can to the 600 walkers. He is also an alumnus of the event's steering committee and is this site's webmaster.
