Ontarians fight to end multiple sclerosis by raising $2.9 million


Mandarin MS Walk participants laced up this past Sunday, May 1 at events across the province to raise $2.9 million for crucial research into the cause, treatment and cure of multiple sclerosis and services for those affected by MS in their communities. With additional Mandarin MS Walk events on April 24, May 15, May 29, and June 5 - a total of 57 across Ontario - with $3.8 million set to be raised in 2016.

Canada has the highest rate of multiple sclerosis in the world. MS is a chronic, often disabling disease of the central nervous system comprising the brain, spinal cord and optic nerve. It is one of the most common neurological diseases affecting young adults in Canada. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 40, and the unpredictable effects of MS last for the rest of their lives.

The MS Walk is a family-oriented, community-supported event involving over 60,000 participants and volunteers in more than 160 communities across Canada. Each event location has routes of varying length and at least one route that is wheelchair accessible. For more information about the MS Walk visit mswalks.ca.
