Did you know - Canada has the highest rate of Multiple Sclerosis in the world! After Samanthas' diagnosis 15 years ago, ourfamily and friends formed a team and started participating in the MS Supercities Walk. We haven't missed a year, and considered not fundraising during this pandemic as its difficult times for many. However, just like many organizations, charities are also struggling, and at a time when those who rely on them, need their support more than ever. Please support myself, or our team, in our fundraising efforts - every dollar has impact to support research and funding to find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis.
