World MS Day
The Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada marks the month of May as MS Awareness Month. Across the country, our collective aim is to increase awareness about multiple sclerosis; inform the public about the MS Society’s services and mission; and to engage new and existing supporters in our efforts to end MS.
The MS Society of Canada is also a Multiple Sclerosis International Federation (MSIF) member and is pleased to support and promote World MS Day on Wednesday, May 26, 2010. The objectives of the World MS Day are to raise awareness; and to unite, broaden and mobilize the global MS movement.
In addition to public awareness activities, the MS Society is also in the midst of its spring fundraising season in May. The MS Carnation Campaign, held just before Mother's Day, funds MS research and services through the sale of carnations by community volunteers. In many parts of the country, MS Walks are also underway.
May is a great time to hold your own fundraising event.
