Walk for Multiple Sclerosis Sunday

Houston Multiple Sclerosis (MS) support group is hosting an MS walk on Sunday to bring awareness to MS and fund raise for the cause.

Houston MS (Multiple Sclerosis) support group is hosting an MS walk on Sunday, June 2 at 3 p.m.

“We are trying to bring awareness to MS,” said Marion Shepherd, organizer of the local MS walk.

The group will hand out pamphlets with information on MS and how it affects you and the ones you love, and they will also be fund raising for the MS Society, said Shepherd.

“People need to know that they can make a difference in the life of a person affected by MS,” says Debbie Irwin, Community Services Coordinator for the MS Society of Canada.

Irwin says the Canada-wide ‘1 day in May’ MS campaign aims to gain improved access to home care for people living with MS, who struggle to obtain or keep the home care supports they need.

Houston campaigners will start at A&W, go west along Highway 16 to the street lights by the Industrial Park, then they will cross the highway and head south across the bridge, and through to the east end of Steelhead Park and then back west through the park to A&W.

Anyone interested in joining the walk or wanting more information is asked to contact Marion at 250-845-4636.
