It’s MS Awareness Month

There are many things we can (and most of us do) to contribute everday.  This month its Multiple Sclerosis.

There are walks, volunteer options, and donations. Everything has a different purpose and every part helps! Information on different opportunities is available here: http://mssociety.ca/en/

Here is the post from his wall (Facebook):
