‘Every step matters’

Scotiabank MS Walk takes place May 15 at Bear Creek Park.

With Canada having the highest rate of multiple sclerosis in the world, Scotiabank MS Walk organizers are hoping people will feel inspired to participate in the annual event on May 15 at Bear Creek Park.

Check-in time is 8 a.m. and the walk begins at 10 a.m.

“The need for donations is immense as we fight to find a cure and advance research efforts,” said Rowena Veylan, Senior Director, Development, B.C. and Yukon Division of the MS Society.

“Here in B.C. alone, there are approximately 12,000 people currently living with MS. Whether you are a long time participant or have yet to get involved in our fundraising initiatives, now is the time to join us on the walk where every step matters.”

The routes are three, five and 6.5 kilometres long.

Upon returning, walkers can enjoy snacks and refreshments, music, family-friendly activities, and the great company of other dedicated walkers.

Wheelchairs, scooters and strollers are welcome.

Bear Creek Park is located at 13750 88 Ave.

Create a team of friends, family, and co-workers to fundraise and walk with you.
