I learned in summer of 1999 that my brother Ron has Multiple Sclerosis. In spring of 2000, Ron and I along with my daughter Alaina and 2 of my friends participated in our first MS Walk in Niagara Falls, Ontario. In the years that followed, more family members participated and Team Fathead was formed. Over the years, we have met other great participants and volunteers. Team Fathead has become a senior team in more ways than one! The MS walk is not just a fundraiser, it is a family and community tradition. This is the second year of the VIRTUAL walk. We all miss being together. But, we persevere and hope that this will be our best year ever!
Those with Multiple Sclerosis are amongst the most vulnerable and programs that support this population are needed now more than ever!
Imagine a future without MS
I have registered for the MS Walk because I want to do something for everyone who lives with multiple sclerosis. The MS Society is the only national voluntary organization in Canada that supports both MS research and services, and the MS Walk has been a critical part of the MS Society's fundraising efforts for over 20 years. Proceeds from this event and others like it provide support and services to help those living with this disease, their families and caregivers. They also fund research with three primary goals: to find a cause and cure for MS, repair nervous system damage caused by MS and stop MS attacks. By supporting me, you too can make a difference in the life of someone with multiple sclerosis.
I am part of the MS Walk because I believe we will end multiple sclerosis - with your help we can get there. Please give generously.
