Every year, over 40,000 Canadians in more than 160 communities across our country lace up at the MS Walk to raise vital funds for people living with MS.  This family-oriented, community-supported event offers walking routes of varying lengths, including a wheelchair-accessible route and features start / finish line activities, entertainment, kids’ activities, team awards and more.

This year’s Scotiabank MS Walks will be at Trail’s Gyro Park on Sunday, April 27, and at Nelson’s Lakeside  Park Rotary Shelter on Sunday, May 25.

Registration for this event is free and easy—just go to to register as an individual or a team.  There are incentive prizes for different fundraising levels, and every participant receives a t-shirt in recognition of their support.

The Scotiabank MS Walks are a major source of funding for the work of the MS Society.  The West Kootenay Chapter supports people in the Kootenay/Boundary region living with MS and their families with wellness programs such as yoga, information sessions, and advocacy services.  The Chapter also contributes funds to research dedicated to find a cure and end MS.
