Why I’m lacing up
Every day 3 more Canadians are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable illness that affects vision, balance, memory and mobility. My wife Jocelyn is one of the many affected. We don’t know what causes MS and there is no cure, but I’m walking to help change lives beginning right where I live.
This could not be more true when it comes to my wife Jocelyn. She was diagnosed in 2013 with severe relapse/remitting MS. Sadly her relapses happen constantly, and her great days are severly outnumbered by her bad. But you can help!
Your support means families in our community who are impacted by this often devastating disease do not have to face MS alone.
Your dollars at work
When you pledge me in the MS Walk, your funds are invested into groundbreaking MS research and services for the 100,000 Canadians living with MS.
Services and programs your fundraising supports:
- Financial assistance for special equipment and home care
- Supportive counselling for all those affected by MS
- Self-help groups and recreational programs for people with MS
- Government advocacy for people living with MS
Thank you in advance for your pledge to create a more hopeful future for those affected by MS.
