My family and friends are awsome! Last year I raised $2,295, which put me as the 2nd place fundraiser in Welland. Over the last 20 years, I have with your help brought in over an amazing $24,000! Our little team raised $7,525 in 2019! All I can say is a very big thank you to you all!
I am walking again to support people with MS, on this virtual walk set for Sunday May 24! Even though our gang can't get together this year, most of us are planning to walk in our neighbourhoods. "Goldie's Gang" is celebrating its 20th year! We are a small team of about 8 of us, but we are mighty! We have been the top fundraising team for the last few years. Our team has raised over $80,000! Karen, our fearless leader, has MS. Not only is she my friend but is also a nurse like me. As nurses, we would like to see a cure for this disease. If anyone feels like they can support me in anyway this year, I will be grateful. I know times are tough, so any amount will be appreciated. Every little bit starts to add up. The MS society will be mailing out income tax receipts for $20 or more. You can support me on line, or if you wish to give in person, please call me (905 468 2730) or email me for a pick up! ( cheque's preferred) made out to the MS Society. Click on the black “Donate Now” button at top right corner beside my picture!

Can you imagine...
Having multiple sclerosis means that one morning you may not be able to walk when you wake up. Or that you may suddenly have impaired vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. The symptoms of MS are many and vary for everyone. It's estimated that approximately 55,000-75,000 men and women in Canada have the disease, and every day about three more people are diagnosed.
...a future without MS
I've 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.
