Joni, diagnosed in 2017
“When we come together for events [like MS Walk], it makes me feel like I am not the only one in this world battling MS and I’m reminded of the many people out there supporting people living with the disease.”
Tina, diagnosed in 2017
“When you know that you are part of a community, where tens of thousands of people walk with you, it fills you with hope. The powerful message here is that we are stronger together. We are not alone, and we are all MS warriors (whether you are fighting for yourself or someone you love).”
Since 1948 we have contributed more than $200 million towards groundbreaking MS research. This investment has brought us closer to earlier diagnosis, better treatments and ultimately a cure for MS. Only you can keep this momentum going. Your MS Walk fundraising will help ensure that MS researchers continue their critical work and make the next great discovery.
Advocacy to ensure all people living with MS have access
Not all Canadians have sufficient and affordable access to treatments. When you fundraise for MS Walk, you make certain that financial circumstance doesn’t limit one’s ability to access effective treatments.
Support when people living with MS need it
Your MS Walk fundraising helps operate the MS Knowledge Network, a hub that anyone can call to access current and reliable disease information, and the 1:1 Peer Support Program which connects people seeking support with those in the community who can provide it.
