Multiple Sclerosis is a neurological disease that affects over 55,000 Canadians and their families. Canada has one of the highest rates of MS in the world and is a leader in finding a cure for MS.
I have participated in the MS Walk for the past eight years and many of my friends in Princeton have been very generous in supporting my fundraising efforts. Unfortunately, for health reasons, I will not be participating in this year’s MS Walk. But the search for a cure for Multiple Sclerosis and the need for programs and services for those affected by the disease continues. Much progress has been made over the past few years, such as the development of new drug therapies and research into treatments such as CCSVI.
Last year our grandson, Liam, joined us in the Penticton MS Walk. This year, on April 17th, 18 month old Liam will be participating in the MS Walk in Toronto. If you would like to support the fundraising efforts of Liam, and help find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis, you can do so by going to the MS website at mssociety.ca and following the links to the MS Walk – pledge a participant section, and entering Liam Northup. Or you can send your pledge to the MS Society, 3373 Skaha Lake Road, Penticton, V2A 6G6. The MS Walk in Penticton is being held on May 1st. We thank you for your support.
Liam and Grandpa Ken Carlson
