In 2018, over 30,000 volunteers walked in support of research for MS across Canada and, together, they helped to raise over $8 million for MS research.

The MS Walk is an event supported by friends, family and the community of British Columbians affected by MS and raises funds to help put an end to multiple sclerosis. Participants can choose from a variety of routes, including a wheelchair accessible route for participants using mobility aids. More information is available online at mswalks.ca.

Canada has one of the highest rates of MS in the world. The funds raised at the MS Walk are invested in accelerating the pace of MS breakthroughs and empowering people with MS to live their best lives.
