Multiple Sclerosis is the most prominent neurological disease among young Canadians, and currently affects nearly 70 000 Canadians. Further, MS is more prominent in Canada than any other country, and affects three times as many women as men. In response to the way in which MS affects Canadians, the MS Society has led the search for a cure.
On April 22nd, nearly fifty communities across the province will take part in the MS Walk, and simultaneously join together to find a cause and support those living with MS. The MS Walk is an all-day event that involves members of the community coming together for a walkathon of 5 to 10 kilometers. After the walk itself, the events are typically distinguished by a set of well-deserved ceremonies and celebrations. Last year these events raised over 6 million dollars to develop a cure and enrich the lives of those living with MS.
