On October 24th, I will be running 21.1km to change the future of Multiple Sclerosis.
MS is a chronic autoimmune disease of the central nervous system. Since that includes the brain, spinal cord and optic nerve, MS can affect vision, memory, balance and mobility. At the moment, there is no cure for MS.
MS hits close to home as my husband, Matthew, was diagnosed with MS earlier this year during the pandemic. To say that it has been a tough year is an understatement. There are good days and bad days, but knowing that we live in a time where we've been able to make great strides in MS research makes things a little easier.
In Canada, there is one organization with national reach that can support people impacted by MS and tip the scales of MS research to change lives forever: the MS Society of Canada.
Our mission is to connect and empower the MS community to create a positive change.
The MS Society of Canada takes collective action to fund innovative and ground-breaking research that will advance treatment and care for people affected by MS.
There have been incredible breakthroughs made and we still have more to achieve.
