Fort St. John's First MS Walk

Description: 

Canada has the highest rate of Multiple Sclerosis in the world, and we are asking for your help.  The MS Walk is the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada’s signature event – a grassroots and community based event that raises more than $9 million annually across the country. Last year, MS walks across British Columbia hosted over 3,500 participants, involved thousands of volunteers and raised over $925,000!

For the first time, volunteer organizers from Fort St. John will be hosting their own MS Walk in support of the 100,000 Canadians living with MS.  The walk will take place on Sunday May 28th at Centennial Park.

Grande Prairie is the closest walk to Fort St. John.  Knowing funds were not staying in British Columbia, it was important to have a local walk that would directly benefit those living with MS in Northern BC and allow her and those who support and care for her to attend.  This will be the only walk held north of Prince George.

This event is being run independently from the walks hosted by the MS Society.  I encourage you to register for this walk as an individual or a team and fundraise to help make this event successful, in hopes that this walk will bring awareness to our community!
