Why I’m lacing up
In July 2013, I was diagnosed with the early stages of MS and have been working on spreading MS awareness since then. I have been lucky enough to have the support of family, friends and the MS Society since being diagnosed. I know without the money raised is what allows people like me to use the services provided. This is the 4th year my team has walked and we have grown by a few people :)
Not only does my team collect donations through this website, but we will be holding a steak night and paint nite in 2017 to raise funds. In the past we have done bake sales to raise money but are changing things up this time. If you are interested in coming or donating a raffle item, please let me know!
I have named my team "Team Massive Superawesomeness" because a dear friend of mine (Alex) told me that MS stands for "Massive Superawesomeness" when I was diagnosed and that has stuck with me. It reminds me every day that no matter what, I can always be the best me ever!
It's because of events like the MS Walk that research, support groups and aid can be given to MSers and their families. So please, donate and watch what your money can do!
Your dollars at work
When you pledge me in the MS Walk, your funds are invested into groundbreaking MS research and services for the 100,000 Canadians living with MS.
Services and programs your fundraising supports:
- Financial assistance for special equipment and home care
- Supportive counselling for all those affected by MS
- Self-help groups and recreational programs for people with MS
- Government advocacy for people living with MS
Thank you in advance for your pledge to create a more hopeful future for those affected by MS.
