Vancouver ScotiaBank MS Walk 2015

Written by on May 25th, 2015 –

Yesterday was the Vancouver ScotiaBank MS Walk. This year. the walk was held at a new location, at The Plaza of Nations right along False Creek in beautiful downtown Vancouver. This meant that the route ran right along the seawall. It was a gorgeous walk for everyone who participated.

The turn out was fantastic-about 500 people showed up and there was so much to see-teams in costumes…


Teams with signs…


Teams whose participants were doing the course their own way…


Multi-generational family teams…


Teams honouring loved ones…


And even teams with 4 legged friends joining the cause!



There was lots of cheering and high fives…


Inspiring sidewalk chalk message written by volunteers….



And face painting!


I want to make special mention of the UBC MS Remyelinators team. This team was made up of MS researchers and clinicians. They were loud and proud and I am guessing the largest team with about 75 people. I think it’s really wonderful that they participated in the walk. They exemplified community. I have to say that the scientists and clinicians that work with the MS Society are some of the most amazing and dedicated people I’ve ever met. They continuously go above and beyond to care for and support MS and NMO patients. We are extremely lucky to have them fighting alongside us every single day.



We are still waiting to hear the final total but I think Vancouver’s walk was a huge success! Thank you to all the participants, sponsors, volunteers and staff. Together, we will END MS!!
