I walk because..
I have a family history of MS. My mother 2 cousins and a second cousin. I have seen first hand what it does to people and their families. If I can help with research or resouces for families coping with this disease by walking and asking others to help it is a small price.
Having multiple sclerosis means that one morning you may not be able to walk when you wake up. Or that you may suddenly have impaired vision. Or that your memory will fail you for no apparent reason. The symptoms of MS are many and vary for everyone. It’s estimated that approximately 55,000-75,000 men and women in Canada have the disease, and every day about three more people are diagnosed.
…a future without MS
I’ve registered for the MS Walk because I want to do something for everyone who lives with multiple sclerosis. By supporting me, you too can make a difference in the life of someone with multiple sclerosis.
I am part of the MS Walk because I believe we will end multiple sclerosis - with your help we can get there. Please give generously.
