WEST ORANGE, NJ — The National Multiple Sclerosis Society will host MuckFest MS in South Mountain Reservation on Saturday, June 24, and Sunday, June 25, beginning at 9 a.m. at the intersection of Northfield Avenue and Cherry Lane in West Orange. Participants navigate their way through a variety of military-style obstacles over a 5K course. Proceeds help provide programs and services to people living with multiple sclerosis in the Northeast area and drive cutting-edge research aimed at stopping MS.
“As a resident of Essex County, it always is great to come here,” Chapter President Lisa Gallipoli said, adding that the funds raised help those with MS to live better lives.
