WEST HAVEN, April 30, 2018 — Park-Rec’s Tom Conroy, yellow windbreaker, and members of Conroy’s Team Tom strike a pose during the annual Connecticut MS Walk on Sunday, April 29, at the Savin Rock Conference Center.

The 2- or 5-mile walk for multiple sclerosis ran in part along the Savin Rock beach walk.

Conroy, 63, a program coordinator at the Department of Parks and Recreation, was diagnosed 10 years ago with MS, a chronic disease that affects the central nervous system.

To raise money for MS research, the team sold tie-dye T-shirts for $20.

Since 2009, Team Tom has collected more than $40,000 in T-shirt sales for the cause.
