MS Walk goes Sunday

Hundreds of people are expected to take part in Sunday's MS Walk in Penticton to support those living with multiple sclerosis, a disease that affects the brain and spinal cord.

The annual walk begins at 10 a.m. at Skaha Lake Park, with check-in beginning at 9 a.m. Those taking part can choose how long they walk of the route, which will be wheelchair accessible as well.

The MS Society of Canada said the event "is a family-oriented, community-supported event that raises funds in support of the fight to end MS."

In Penticton, those attending and members of the media will be able to hear the inspiring stories from people who are living with the disease.

Nationally, more than 130 walks will be taking place on Sunday with more than 30,000 participants expected.

Canada has the world's highest rate of MS, according to the MSSOC.

"The dollars you raise are invested in world-leading MS research and to help fund stem cell research, discover what causes MS, and advocate for accessible and low-cost treatments."
