Impact Statement Every year, we strive to find better ways to serve Canadians living with MS.

The MS Society Impact Report highlights our achievements in serving people who live with MS and advancements to finding a cure for the disease.
Description The 2024 York Region MS Walk is taking place Sunday May 26th 11:00 am at Richmond Green Park.

The MS Walk is a communitydriven event for people living with or affected by Multiple Sclerosis as well as those who want to support our vision of creating a world free of MS. Tens of thousands of Canadians come together in their communities every May to participate, fundraise and volunteer in MS Walk to help find the cause and cure for this disease. These events would not be possible without the support of hundreds of dedicated volunteers given their time.

There are various areas on site (Event set up/wrap up, parking control, participant check in area, checkpoint set up/attendants, route guides, food & beverage area, kids activity area, start/finish line cheering, volunteer check in) where volunteer help is needed to ensure that this event runs smoothly and participants have a great experience while they are walking to raise critical funds to support those effected by MS.
