SARTELL — Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that is hard to overcome for anyone, but with partnership of Fitness Evolution and Fit-Pro, trainers are trying to help those with MS live a healthier lifestyle with the MS Fitness Challenge.

The event was created by David Lyons, who also suffers from Multiple Sclerosis, as a way to help those with MS try and fight this disease like he did.

“My goal was to get on a body building stage as soon as I can to prove to the world that even though I had MS I could still overcome this disease,” says Lyons.

This 12 week program with pair those who have MS with a trainer and help build the muscles that the disease try’s to take away.

“We’re trying to help them create a goal and help them achieve the next level of fitness, or mobility or better living,” says Fitness Evolution Club Owner Brad Kloss.

Throughout the day Fitness Evolution, in Sartell, will hold a live auction, zumbathon, food vendors, silent auction, as well as a live concert from Country Music Singer Julie Roberts which will start at 2:00 p.m.

“I’m very blessed that I can travel around singing my music and telling people about MS”, says Roberts, who also has MS. “And telling those with it you can come and work out, and you can live a normal life, and you can follow your dreams.”

All the proceeds from the auction will then go into funding for trainers and memberships to those participating in the MS Fitness Challenge.
