MS Walk Goes Virtual on Sunday


Signature Events Manager for the BC/Yukon division of the MS Society of Canada Ashely McCartie says the annual MS Walk is going to take place on Sunday but will look a little different this year. 

Instead of gathering to walk together, people are encouraged to sign up online and walk where they can. 

“If anyone wants to get involved they can register at We're going to be hosting a live streaming Facebook event, and if you're on Facebook you can search 'We Challenge MS' on Facebook and join the We Challenge MS rally event.”

McCartie says it could be your favourite hike, a walk around the block or a dance party in the living room. 

She wants you to mark the day, take photos, and post them online with the hashtags #MSwalk and #WeChallengeMS. 

People living with MS are at high risk of contracting COVID-19 and McCartie wants to show them they are still being cared for and the fight to end MS is still moving forward.
