Volunteers can raise pledges too!
Help us reach our goal of raising over $1 million for the St. Albert and Edmonton WALKs.  Help us to make a difference in the lives of those affected by MS and to support MS Research into a cure.  Let us know if you are interested in raising pledges.  Volunteers, like participants will then be eligible for the WALK Prizes.
