There was a lot more than baseball going on Sunday at Coca-Cola Park in Allentown.

The home of the Lehigh Valley IronPigs hosted Walk MS Sunday morning, which raised money for multiple sclerosis research and programs.

A team from 69 News was there to support one of our own.

Maria Gonzalez, who has been diagnosed with MS, said: "Having a lot of friends and family with me makes me feel like I don't have MS, like I'm just a normal person walking with the rest of my family. So basically, being here makes me stronger, makes me forget at least one day I have MS."

Walkers were greeted with cheers, and there was music and food -- and a visit from the IronPigs' official mascots.
