Why I’m lacing up
Did you know that Canada has the highest rate of MS in the entire world? It is not always fatal and by donating to this cause we are that much closer to discovering more about what causes MS, which in turn may be able to lead to the prevention of the disease, and will certainly make a difference to those that are currenlty living with MS. There are many factors about MS that are uncertain. Is it genetic, or biological? Does your environment and lifestyle play a contributing factor in whether or not you develop MS? What about age or gender? There are so many factors to MS, which is why our support is needed! Every step matters so lets kick it up a notch and come out as Superheroes!
Every day 3 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, but I’m walking to help change lives beginning right where I live.
Your support means families in our community who are impacted by this often devastating disease do not have to face MS alone.
