MS Walk

Why Walk?

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.
