MS Walker, Stranded By Volcano, Organizes Impromptu Paris March

Missy Sternlic is an American in Paris; she was trying to fly home for a multiple sclerosis fundraising walk, but the massive ash clouds from the eruption of Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull kept her grounded.

With a little inspiration and help from her friends, she created, in less than 24 hours, her own fundraiser walk for MS in Paris. About 100 people showed up to support the cause and create an inspiring impromptu service effort.
