With Canada having the highest rate of multiple sclerosis in the world, Scotiabank MS Penticton Walk organizers are hoping hundreds will feel inspired to participate in the annual event starting at 10 a.m. May 15 at Skaha Park.

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

Every year more than 40,000 Canadians in more than 160 communities across our country support the MS Walk and raise vital funds for people living with MS. The Scotiabank MS Walk is a celebration of the power we have to change the lives of Canadians with MS.

Start your morning right, with a complimentary light breakfast and coffee service while touring around Walkers Village with Team MS Photos, entertainment and hear from our local hero’s, advocates and volunteers. Also, power chairs will be available on site.

Walk, run or roll one of the two route lengths (2.5 km and 5 km) around the Skaka Park and trails walking path, which is a fully-accessible route. Check in time is 8:45 a.m.
