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 by completing a 5K 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.
MS Walk is a gathering of communities all over Canada to show support that no person living with multiple sclerosis is alone. It is comprised of people living with MS, affected by MS, and those who want to help create a world free of MS.
The gathering builds awareness while raising funds to ensure those affected have access to information, support programs and services such as virtual wellness, 1 to 1 peer support, and the MS Knowledge Network.
Family, friends, co-workers, neighbours, and the local community, gather to participate in the walk each year. With COVID restrictions in place, this walk will be done virtually.
