The Family Walkers- Self Help Group encourage people to stop by the MS tent at the Scotiabank Walk where you will find helpful information about MS along with information on what is available in our community to support people who are living with MS, their families and their caregivers.

Visit the craft area to see talented crafts by the MS “Crafty Old Ladies”.  At the craft table there is an opportunity to participate in a fun drawing/coloring craft.

Canada has the highest rate of MS in the world affecting not only individuals, but also families and loved ones who come together to manage the realities of MS. MS is one of the most common neurological disease affecting young adults in Canada.

MS impacts all Canadians, and this is why we urge people to join the Scotiabank MS Duncan Walk at the Cowichan Sportsplex on Sunday, May 15, 2016 and raise much needed funds for MS research and services for people affected by the disease.

The Scotiabank MS Walk in Duncan is accessible to wheelchairs, scooters, strollers and leashed doggies.  Participants can enjoy a pre-walk java and goodie, a lively water stop, a fabulous lunch, music, inspirational words and the great company of other dedicated walkers.

Funds raised at the MS Walk go to supporting groundbreaking, Canadian-led research into the cause and cure for MS as well as helping Canadians with MS live better until a cure is found.

For more information or to register go to www.mswalks.ca or call the local MS Society office at 250-748-7010. Email Sheron: Sheron.chrysler@mssociety.ca

We would like to thank the Family Walkers – Self-Help Group for supporting the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
