Two Walk MS events set for next two weekends

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s San Diego-based Pacific South Coast Chapter will present two 2013 San Diego County Credit Union Walk MS events over the next two weekends. The Walk MS events in San Diego, to be held on Sunday, April 21 and Saturday, April 27, will raise donations to benefit research and services and programs for people with MS, a chronic, unpredictable and disabling neurological disease of the central nervous system with no known cause, cure or prevention.
San Diego County Credit Union (SDCCU), San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution with three East County branches in El Cajon, La Mesa and Santee, will return as title sponsor of the two Walk MS events. It will be the 12th consecutive year that SDCCU has served as title sponsor. SDCCU has supported the National MS Society’s Walk MS for the past 15 years, and has served as title sponsor since 2002. Over the years, SDCCU’s sponsorship support for Walk MS has exceeded $1 million, according to the National MS Society.
The first San Diego County Credit Union Walk MS will be held on Sunday morning, April 21 at the Legoland California Resort in Carlsbad. About 3,500 people are expected to walk a 1.5-mile route through Legoland, and help raise about $400,000 in donations. Check-in begins at 7 a.m. and the walk begins at 8 a.m. Legoland will be open only to Walk MS walkers during the fundraiser. At the conclusion of Walk MS, Legoland will open at its regularly scheduled time of 10 a.m., and all walkers will be invited to re-enter the theme park at a discounted admission price.
A second San Diego County Credit Union Walk MS will be held on Saturday morning, April 27, at NTC Park at Liberty Station in San Diego’s Point Loma. More than 4,000 people are expected to walk a three-mile route along San Diego Bay, and help raise about $475,000 in donations. Check-in begins at 7:30 a.m. and the walk begins at 8:30 a.m.
