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:
- Canadian MS research - Research into causes & risk factors, treatments for progressive forms of MS, translational research, scholarships, stem cells, Vitamin D, diet & exercise.
- Programs and services - The MS Society offers a variety of programs to help people affected by multiple sclerosis effectively manage and cope with the disease. MS can be quite challenging at times, but through the support offered by the MS Society, no one has to face these challenges on their own.
- Advocacy work - We are advocating for more flexible income and employment supports for Canadians affected by MS, caregiver supports, coordinated care, and more investment from our governments in MS research.
