The MS Society has a series of upcoming community events in Hope.

For World MS Day on May 29, Hope Pharmasave is hosting a Multiple Sclerosis (MS) information booth and gift basket draw from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The third annual Hope MS Walk takes over Memorial Park on June 9, with check-in at 10 a.m. and the event starting at 11 a.m. On June 12, there will also be a Hope MS Support Group meeting for people affected by MS at Kimchi Restaurant from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

MS is an unpredictable disease of the central nervous system affecting mostly young adults. Canada has one of the highest MS rates in the world, with three new Canadians being diagnosed daily with the disease. MS can affect vision, hearing, memory, balance and mobility. The MS Society is a non-profit organization that operates on donations. All donations go towards providing support services and research into finding a cause and cure for MS.
