MS Walk

Rain Doesn’t Deter MS Fundraisers

Despite a rainy day, the Port Alice Scotiabank MS Walk was a success

The Port Alice Scotiabank MS Walk participants took place May 3.

Participants were  a fantastic group that have raised $10,676.76 so far!!!

The top fund-raisers:  were Barbara Rickard $4,017.15 from Port McNeill; Lyla McCarthy $1,080 from Port Alice and Jessica Pool $840 from Port Hardy.

The team totals were as follows, the  Frigon Island Walkers (Port Alice Scotiabank team) $4,549.61, and The Village People (Village of Port Alice) $670.

Team MAC $495

Participants braved showers.

The tri-Port towns of Port Alice, Port McNeill and Port Hardy are amazing! Thanks so much to all of our participants and to everyone who donated to the Port Alice Scotiabank MS Walk.

All funds raised stay on North Vancouver Island to provide local programs and services to people affected by MS and for our Chapter’s annual research donation to find a cure for MS.
