About 200 people are resting Sunday night after completing a 50-mile walk through San Diego over the past three days.

It's all part of a fundraiser for multiple sclerosis called the Challenge Walk MS.

The group started on Friday morning at The Flower Fields in Carlsbad, and crossed the finish line Sunday afternoon at the Embarcadero.

Many walked in honor of a loved one who is living with MS, while other walkers are living with the disease.

"To see all these people come out and support my close friends, coming out to support me and all these people who don't have MS and aren't affected to come out and support us and raise money for a cure," said Dinah Griffin.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society hoped to raise about $650,000 this weekend.
