Hi Family and Friends: Thanks to everyone who donated to team Kicks for last year's MS Walk in Collingwood. We raised $1440.00.
This year will be our 9th walk since Barbara's diagnosis. She has had a good year with no serious relapses just some dizziness, tiredness and lethargy. She continues to work at Nuvango as their Manager of Client Services. She tries to stick to a regimen of vitamins and exercise which I feel have been important in preventing relapses.
We will be having a draw again this year for some great prizes. If you are a Winner, your prize will be sent to you.
Bill Barlow from Iron Media is donating a hand-drawn pop art drawing (8 x 10) from your favourite photo for one of our prizes. The winner will send their favourite photo to Bill as per his instructions and he will draw up a great personal pop art drawing from it.
So for every 10 dollars you donate, your name will be entered into our draw which will take place on May 7th in Collingwood.
Last year's lucky winners were Solveig who won the Pop Art Drawing, Christina who won the Nuvango pillows , Grace who won a 50 dollar gift certificate from Nuvango and Sheri who won a tech accessory. Congratulations everyone and thank you for your continued support.
Our team Kicks is very small and we would certainly welcome anyone who would like to join us walking to support this great Canadian cause. If you are interested in joining our team Kicks, just drop us a note and we will gladly help you get signed up to join our team.

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
Ive registered for the MS Walk because I want to do something for everyone who lives with multiple sclerosis. The MS Society is the only national voluntary organization in Canada that supports both MS research and services, and the MS Walk has been a critical part of the MS Society?s fundraising efforts for over 20 years. Proceeds from this event and others like it provide support and services to help those living with this disease, their families and caregivers. They also fund research with three primary goals: to find a cause and cure for MS, repair nervous system damage caused by MS and stop MS attacks. 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.
