The annual Scotiabank MS Society Walk was held today at the Lheidli T’enneh Memorial Park along the beautiful Fraser River.
It was a fantastic turnout for what is believed to be the 10th annual walk of it’s kind in Prince George.
There were speeches given by Ashley Provencher who was diagnosed in 2002, as well as representatives from the MS Society and the honourable Shirley Bond.
Live and Lift was there to run the pre walk stretching/warm up as well!
MS is a chronic disease that affects the central nervous system and there is no way to tell how it will affect you on a day to day basis.
Some great news was revealed recently as one of the genes that causes MS has been discovered. This means it MAY be easier to treat in the future.
Events such as this one help bring awareness and raise funds to find a cure to this deadly disease and Prince George continues it’s amazing charitable support with more than $20,000 has been raised so far with the goal of raising $40,000 for MS research and care in the city.
