I’m taking part in this not only to meet other folks of this new community I am now a part of, not only to fundraiser to help research for a disease that currently has no cure, but also because right now, I can.

Some days can be scary and sometimes it’s less fun than others but as of right now, for the most part, everything is okay and this is something I can take part in.
If you feel like you want to contribute, that’s fantastic and I thank you but if you are also in the Halifax area and want to join my team and go for a nice walk, please join my team ‘Walk a Myelin my shoes’. Gus might even be available for big slobbery kisses that day! May 26th - let’s do this thing!
Canadians have one of the highest rates of MS in the world, and on average, 11 Canadians are diagnosed with this unpredictable illness every day. We don't know what causes MS, and we don't have a cure. Yet.
I am participating in MS Walk because I want to support the world's leading researchers discover the cause, treatments and cure for MS. Leading-edge research and support programs have improved the quality of life for people affected by MS.
When you make a donation to my fundraising, you are helping continue this incredible work.
Thank you for supporting our MS Walk community. We wouldn't be where we are today without your support.
