Walk this way for MS, Squamish

Locals embark on fundraiser for Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada

On May 2, among the many who will undoubtedly be sharing the Four Lakes Trail will be a team of local women walking for a cause.

Lindsay Waite and veterinarian Gabrielle Lunter, both from the Garibaldi Veterinary Hospital, make up half of the Wobbly Warriors team. Victoria Duffeild, Melissa Hunter and Waite's dog Finn will be tackling the trail as well. They aim to raise $10,000 for the MS Society of Canada, and invite others to join them at Alice Lake Provincial Park to show support.

The cause is one close to home for Waite, who was diagnosed with MS in 2017.

Last year, Waite raised funds for the I Challenge MS mission — and walked 10 kilometres in the process.

Multiple sclerosis can affect vision, balance, memory and mobility. Canada has one of the highest rates of MS in the world. There is no known cure for the autoimmune disease.
