About the Event
As a woman who has suffered and still suffer from FMS for several years and one who has hoped for a cure, I’ve teamed with IMAGE which is an Organization that I am a part of, To host the second Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Awareness Walk here in Greenwood, Mississippi on May 12, 2018. The walk will start between the bridges at the boat landing on Claiborne Avenue and continue to Bankston Elementary School and back which is a 3 mile walk. We will have information pamphlets for our participants and onlookers. We ask that everyone come out and bring your family and friends to support and enjoy an event that is so important to me and others who suffer from Fibromyalgia or other Chronic Pain conditions.
