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!
The 21st MS Walk is already over. All year long, you made countless efforts to raise money; on behalf of the MS Society, we congratulate you on your hard work. Thanks to all of you, the 2015 MS Walk has raised more than $1,000,500 in Quebec so far. Once again, BRAVO!
We really hope you’ll be with us again next year for the 22st MS Walk, to be held on May 29, 2016.
