Canada has one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis in the world, and every year friends, family members and co-workers band together at MS Walk to take a stand against this disease. From start to finish, MS Walk inspires members of the community to help build a hopeful future for Canadians living with multiple sclerosis.
“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
MS Walk creates a uniquely diverse community whose collective goal is to support those affected by MS. Money raised by MS Walk participants support important programs and services, and fund ground-breaking research. When you join your local MS Walk you will make a meaningful impact on the things that hold the most promise to the MS 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.
