May 25, 2014, is the date of Quebec's 20th MS Walk! Together, let's lace up for people with multiple sclerosis.
By participating in the MS Walk for someone you love or for yourself, you're helping to finance the programs and services offered to people in your region with MS. For 20 years, your efforts during this unifying event have made it possible to create an exceptional Canadian network of MS researchers and to raise Canada to the ranks of the countries that are contributing the most to advances in MS research.
Nevertheless, important questions still remain unanswered about the cause, prevention, treatment and cure for MS. This unpredictable disease can affect vision, memory, balance and mobility, among other things. Continuing to support the MS Society is crucially important in inspiring hope in people with multiple sclerosis, and that's why your participation in the MS Walk is so important.
Every step matters… Let’s continue to walk to end MS!
A caring and concerned friend of the challenged
"It is with great pleasure that I agreed to act as Honorary Chairperson of the West Island's 2014 MS Walk. The real honorees are the thousands of Canadians suffering with multiple sclerosis and their caregivers. It is my prayer that the dollars we raise today make a huge step toward the eventual control and prevention of this disabling disease. Let's walk together and make a difference… one step at a time!"
Thanks to all of you, Quebec’s MS Walks raised more than $1,287,000 in 2013, including $111,245 in Montreal West Island. There were so many of you who enthusiastically and energetically raised the money that will fund advances in MS research. We would like to salute the efforts of Robin Little, champion fundraiser, and the West Island Roadrunners team, champion fundraising team and champion recruiting team. They stood out in their communities as exceptional fundraisers. Congratulations to all of you!
