Why I’m walking to end MS
This year, fundraising for the MS Society has a new meaning. My Papa passed away two weeks ago. He was 90 years old and despite living with MS for over 30 years, he always had a smile on his face. The MS Society not only helped provide my Papa with medical care and equipment, they also offered support for my family. This year, the MS Walk is on May 6th and my whole family will be walking in honour of my Papa.
Canada has the highest rate of MS in the world. Every day three more Canadians are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable illness that affects vision, balance, memory and mobility. We don’t know what causes MS and there is no cure.
Your support means Canadian families who are affected by this disease do not have to face MS alone.
When you donate to my fundraising efforts for the MS Walk, your funds are invested into research to find the cause and cure for the disease, while providing services to Canadians with multiple sclerosis and their families.
I will continue to raise money every year so that other families living with MS can have the care and support my papa and my family had.
Thank you in advance for joining the fight to end MS.
