specific event
closes in 37 days (Mon, 27 May)

The 2024 Fraser Valley MS Walk is taking place Sunday May 26th 11:00am at Douglas Park in Langley.


The MS Walk is a community-driven event for people living with or affected by Multiple Sclerosis as well as those who want to support our vision of creating a world free of MS. Tens of thousands of Canadians come together in their communities every May to participate, fundraise and volunteer in MS Walk to help find the cause and cure for this disease.
