MS Walk in Brampton a HUGE success!

MS is a disease that affects millions of people around the world. A disease needs a cure. In fact, Canada has the highest rate of MS in the world. Every year I enjoy – like many others – participating in the annual MS Walk. This event happens in many communities. This year, more than 14,000 Ontario residents put on their shoes for the walk. The MS Walk in Brampton happened at the Heart Lake Secondary School in the north end of the Flower City. Participants were able to do the 4K, 7K and 10 K walk. I was lucky enough to have my wonderful wife, Tamara and my kids join me for the event. In the end, more than $92,000 was raised!

A worthy cause to fight a terrible disease.

Multiple Sclerosis is something that many Canadians and other people around the world deal with on an everyday basis. MS can cause ongoing problems like fatigue, numbness, balance and coordination issues and vision problems.

Even though it is still a little under two months away, the Brampton Mandarin MS Walk is quickly approaching. The exact date for this event is Sunday, May 3rd. Over the years, I have enjoyed taking part in this important event in the Flower City.

I’m very much looking forward to this spring’s walk. This fundraising event is to help make life a little bit better and easier for Canadians who live with multiple sclerosis. The money raised goes to long-term research for more promising therapies. It also helps people with basic everyday needs, too.
