MS Walk Nanaimo 2009

On Sunday, we loaded up the family & friends and sailed across from Gabriola on BC Ferries, to meet our team for the annual MS Walk. The weather was absolutely stunning, which was complimented by the gorgeous walk along down town Nanaimo’s sea wall.

We were walking in support of our good friend Jodi, who was diagnosed with MS when she was only 31, she is an amazingly vibrant person who has not let it affect her day to day living, or her attitude on life. She is a hard individual to keep up with as she is very athletic & outgoing and has so many friends…

So, this year was the first year we put together a team, in full costumes modeled after MS. Canada we entered in the MS. Cured team, with over 20 of participating. The boys looked especially good in the evening gowns, and while none of them shaved their legs, we did help raise some money & awareness (the photo in the paper caught some attention) and to also for the opportunity to spend a couple of hours with good friends!

MS affects so many, friends, co-workers, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, sons & daughters out there, as was evident in nearly 335 participants coming out for the 2009 Nanaimo MS Walk, nearly $75,0000 was raised.

To all those affected, we want to let you know, we care and we are with you every step of the way!
