On Sunday, April 10, Langley will walk, run or rollerblade to end multiple sclerosis, in the annual Scotiabank MS Walk. The walk will take place at Douglas Park at 10 a.m., and includes a scooter and wheelchair accessible route.
The walk is expected to bring upwards of 200 participants together, in support of MS. Last year, over $1.6 million was raised in B.C. and the Yukon. This money goes towards research for a cure to MS, as well as to fund programs to support those living with MS.
B.C. has third highest concentration of people with multiple sclerosis in Canada with an estimated 7,300 to 10,000 living with MS.
The Langley Scotiabank Walk will also feature a kid’s zone with fun activities for the kids, musical entertainment and an invigorating warm-up with the Jazzercise Ladies. Breakfast, snacks and lunch will be provided to participants.
Registration is free and is open until Sunday morning before the walk starts at 10 a.m., for individuals and groups. Early registration begins Saturday at 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., in Douglas Park Recreation Centre. A prize is offered to the top fundraiser.
