29 days until we walk
I was happy to accept the honorary presidency of the 21st MS Walk, which will be an opportunity for all of us to express our solidarity with everyone who is affected by multiple sclerosis, directly or indirectly.
MS is a devastating disease that affects thousands of Canadians. Every day, three people are diagnosed with MS and three lives are turned upside down. Today, research on MS is giving new meaning to the lives of people who have the disease. By participating in the MS Walk, you are helping to finance programs and services offered to people with MS in your region. If we want to fight against multiple sclerosis steadily and efficiently, we must get involved in the various activities organized by the MS Society. That’s the only way we can contribute to the progress of research to discover a cure for this terrible disease.
I encourage all of you to come out and walk with me on May 24, 2015, to support the cause of people affected by MS.
Only research will lead us to victory!
Sylvie Tremblay, General Manager, Caisse Desjardins de Saint-Antoine-des-Laurentides
THERE'S A STORY BEHIND EVERY STEP!
Every year, close to 6,000 walkers help to change the world by participating in one of the 20 MS Walks organized throughout Quebec. Every step expresses a keen desire to give hope to people who live with MS every day.
Canada has the highest rate of multiple sclerosis in the world. But this country is also where some of the most promising MS research is being conducted. Step by step, let's keep contributing to advances in research.
Let's walk so the 100,000 Canadians who have MS can witness breakthroughs in research, starting right now. One day, this progress will lead to a cure for MS.
