Fraser Valley MS Walk this Sunday in Chilliwack

Communities across the province taking part

Canada has the highest rate of multiple sclerosis (MS) in the world.

On Sunday May 27, in communities across the province, over 3,000 participants will come together for British Columbia’s annual MS Walk to fundraise for, and help change the lives of, Canadians living with MS.

The dollars raised are invested in world-leading MS research and to help fund stem cell research, discover what causes MS, and advocate for accessible and low-cost treatments.

Hundreds of participants will take a stand against MS and help build a more hopeful future for Canadians living with MS at the MS Walk at Vedder Park in Chilliwack.

The MS Walk is a family-oriented, community-supported event that raises funds in support of the fight to end MS. Participants can choose from varying route lengths, including a wheelchair accessible route for participants using mobility aids.

The event is May 27 with check-in time at 11:30 a.m., start time at 1 p.m.

Location is Vedder Park, 45454 Petawawa Rd. in Chilliwack.
