Canada has one of the highest rates of MS diagnoses in the world. Women are three times more likely to be diagnosed with MS than men.
Every year, families, friends, co-workers and community members gather together at MS Walk to take a stand against this disease. Together we are building a better future for people affected by MS.
“MS Walk is a place where people affected by MS can be comfortable and surround themselves with a community of like minded people, who’re fundraising to find a cure for all of us living with MS. Who knows, at the rate that MS research is advancing, we may find more answers sooner than we think. I walk because I believe we will find a cure.” - Kim, Port Alberni
Money raised by MS Walk participants fund leading-edge research and important support programs. Joining your local MS Walk means keeping the momentum going and showing support to people who live with MS in your community.
We are dedicated to funding research and services that empower Canadians affected by multiple sclerosis. The money you raise through MS Walk will help fund things like:
Stem cell research
MS Walk participants helped fund the Canadian Bone Marrow Transplantation trial. Now it’s time to fund research that will lead to safer stem cell treatments.
Discover what causes MS
Studies of genetics are revealing more clues about the triggers and drivers of MS.
Advocate for accessible and low-cost treatments
We work to ensure that people living with MS have equal and timely access to treatments based on what is best for their health and not what they can pay.
Accessible, quality information and support
The MS Knowledge Network is our hub of knowledge. Navigators provide consistent, quality MS information and support for anyone affected by multiple sclerosis in Canada.
