Lace up for someone you love and join the fight against multiple sclerosis

Lace up for someone you love and join the fight against multiple sclerosis at the Port McNeill Scotiabank MS Walk on Sunday, May 13th at 10 am.

Proceeds from the Port McNeill Scotiabank MS Walk stay with the North Vancouver Island Chapter and allow us to provide local programs and services to people affected by MS in communities from Bowser to Port Hardy. The walk takes place at the NISS track offering walk participants a safe, scenic, wheelchair and scooter accessible route with three walk lengths to choose from – 2, 4 and 8 km.  Dogs on leash are welcome. Check in begins at 9 am at the NISS track and the walk begins promptly at 10 am. Registered walk participants can enjoy lunch, provided by Super Valu, starting at 11 am.
