You can also attend a meeting hosted by the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance on how to protect Utah’s red-rock canyon country. Later on, don’t miss a discussion on how a fossil-fuel-free and sustainable economy would work in our world.

MS Walk 2014

Multiple Sclerosis is a debilitating disease of the nervous system that affects millions worldwide. Luckily, millions more are doing all they can to raise awareness of research efforts to combat and treat this disease, and you can join in by participating in the Salt Lake City MS Walk this weekend. Individual registrants can donate as much as they want to the cause, register the day of the walk and take part in the three-mile walk that includes breakfast and snacks as well as a kids zone for the little ones. No fees are required, but donations are welcome.
