Each additional $50 in pledges means another change to win! Download your pledge form or register online today to be a part of this great event and support your local MS Chapter!
Our mission is to enable people affected by multiple sclerosis to enhance their quality of life, raise funds for local programs and services, as well as support research towards finding a cure for multiple sclerosis.
The Grand River Chapter was established to help people who are living with MS. We have never lost sight of this goal and work continually to both maintain favourite programs and bring fresh new ideas forward.
Equipment and Special Assistance Funding
The Grand River Chapter has one of the largest equipment funds in Ontario, and last year we spent more than $100,000 to help people purchase much needed equipment, services and programs. We have helped to fund everything from stair lifts to housecleaning services and we hope that our clients are secure in the knowledge that they can seek financial assistance from their local Chapter.
The Special Assistance Funding Program is efficiently administered out of the MS Society's Toronto Divisional office, ensuring that every request is confidential, properly documented and that every request over $1,000 comes to your Board of Directors for approval. To date, the Chapter has never turned down a request, and it is important that our donors know that the dollars raised are being spent locally on what really matters.
