It’s been five decades since drummer/producer Bobby Colomby and friends assembled the first group to successfully blend rock and jazz into a genre crossing sound and style. So successfully in fact, that the band’s second album, Blood, Sweat & Tears, topped the Billboard charts for many weeks and beat out the Beatles’ Abbey Road for the prestigious Album of the Year Grammy award. That album produced three major hit singles: “You Made me so Very Happy,” “Spinning Wheel,” and “And When I Die.” BS&T has won 3 Grammy’s and nominated over 10 times. But now Colomby is looking for much more as he develops Blood Sweat & Tears into a contemporary voice, one that reaches beyond a single, nostalgic audience. “I no longer want to target just one generation. That would be a mistake. With this updated version, I want this band to gain recognition with a wider audience. I want people of all ages to experience what this music has to offer.

The event includes a 1-3 mile walk route, on-site DJ to provide fun, upbeat music, an auction, children’s activities, and food provided by area restaurants and sponsors. Come join us as we fund-raise to create a world free from MS!

For years, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society has had the pleasure of bringing Walk MS, one of our largest fundraising events, to Lawton.

We need your help! Our Walk MS events wouldn’t be possible without the support of wonderful volunteers. Volunteers are everywhere at Walk MS—helping set up the site, running the registration or food service areas, taking photos, and cheering on the walkers as they cross the finish line.

Visit our volunteer SignUpGenius page below. There, you’ll find times, roles, and job descriptions for each of our Lawton volunteer opportunities. Even if you can’t make it, please share the link with anyone who might be interested.
