Walk for a cause

North Islanders can join the Scotiabank MS Walk in Port McNeill this Sunday.

North Islanders can lace up for a loved one this weekend and join the Scotiabank MS Walk in Port McNeill beginning at 9 a.m. Sunday.

The MS Walk is the Multiple Sclerosis Society’s largest pledge-based fundraiser, involving more than 60,000 participants and volunteers in more than 160 communities across Canada. The Walk began in 1991, and proceeds go to fund research in the search for a cure and vital services for people currently living with multiple sclerosis.

This year’s Walk will be held at the North Island Secondary School track, with route lengths of 2 km, 4 km, or 8 km. Check-in time is at 9 a.m. and the start time is 10 a.m. Following the walk, participants can enjoy lunch and music.
