The Bible Hill Kinsmen are once again involved in the 2017 Medavie Blue Cross MS Walk. The MS Walk is a family oriented, community-supported event that raises funds to support innovative research into the cause, treatment, and cure of multiple sclerosis, as well as valuable services, programs, and advocacy for Canadians affected by MS.
There are more than 140 MS Walk events across Canada, with 13 in Atlantic Canada. The venue for the local walk has changed. After years of being held at Bible Hill Central Elementary School, this year’s three kilometre walk will be hosted at Douglas Street Recreation Centre.
Recruit your family, friends, and colleagues and join us on Sunday, May 28th! Check-in time is 10 a.m., and the walk starts at 11 a.m.

MS is the most common neurological disease affecting young adults in Canada, and affects 100,000 Canadians. A disease of the central nervous system, MS interferes with the brain’s signals to the rest of the body. It’s unpredictable, and causes different symptoms in different people. The cause is unknown, with researchers looking at genetic and environmental factors.
