Walk for MS on May 25

the Scotiabank MS Walk is coming up on May 25 in Kamloops, British Columbia

To the editor;

Our Scotiabank MS Walk is coming up on May 25 in Kamloops. Participants are key to this event’s success and they join us from all the communities within our Chapter area, which includes Barriere and Clearwater.

Multiple sclerosis is a disease of the central nervous system, whose symptoms are varied and unpredictable. Three Canadians are diagnosed with MS every day. The MS Society of Canada is working to change that reality today by funding crucial research to discover what causes MS and to find the cure; and by funding and implementing programs that improve the quality of life for all those affected by MS.

But we cannot do it alone.

We need to increase coverage of our fundraising events throughout our chapter, particularly the Scotiabank MS Walk and MS Bike, and your newspaper is an excellent vehicle to do this.

By having coverage in your newspaper we can raise awareness about MS, and increase the number of participants for our event, thereby increasing funds raised, and bringing us one step closer to finding a cure.

I look forward to working with you towards ending MS.
