Come Out and Stop Multiple Sclerosis!

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - March 14, 2007) - The Quebec Division of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada invites you to participate in the thirteenth edition of the Super Cities WALK for MS, which will take place in 22 cities across Quebec: in Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Drummondville, Gatineau, Granby, Laval, Levis, Montreal, Mont-Tremblant, Repentigny, Saint-Hyacinthe, Saint-Jerome, Sainte-Catherine, Sainte-Therese and Trois-Rivieres on April 29; in Alma, Baie-Comeau, Chicoutimi, Port-Cartier and Sept-Iles on June 3; and in Quebec City, Sherbrooke and Sorel-Tracy on September 9, 2007.

Putting a stop to MS... with your help!

Our objective this year is to have a turnout of 7,500 WALKers and raise $1,300,000 to fund research and services for people with multiple sclerosis (MS) and their families. In 2006, some 7,200 WALKers raised $1,250,000, or $150,000 more than the target amount. With successes like that, we will be able to stop MS, the most widespread neurological disease affecting young adults in Canada; it affects primarily people between the ages of 15 and 40.

WALKing for MS

Come and meet our provincial spokesperson, actor Robert Toupin, who will participate in the Super Cities WALK for MS again this year for his sister Micheline, who has MS, but also for the 13,000 to 18,000 Quebecers with this disease. Paul Labrecque, Regional Director of ECCO Canada and the honorary chair of the Montreal Super Cities WALK for MS, will also be at the start-off at Maisonneuve Park Chalet. Register online today by visiting, where you can also find a lot of practical advice on how to take part in this activity to stop MS, or call 514-849-7591 or 1-800-268-7582.

The Quebec Division of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada is proud to count on Pharmaprix as the principal sponsor of the event for the fourth year in a row.
