An East Tennessee woman will soon start on a 50-mile walk to raise awareness and money to end Multiple Sclerosis.

Libby Hall is participating in this year's national "Challenge Walk MS" later this month. The 3-day walk starts in Charleston, South Carolina and ends in Isle of Palms.

Hall works at UT Medical Center's Cole Neuroscience Center, which helps patients with MS and other diseases.

MS is close to her heart for another reason.

"My sister has multiple sclerosis, and it's a very challenging disease, and I want to help raise awareness and funds to support research for my family as well as those that suffer with MS that we see here at the medical center," says Hall.

The walk is February 28th through March 2nd.
