WHO WE ARE
RACE4MS is about people.
INSPIRED BY THE IDEA THAT COLLECTIVELY WE CAN ACHIEVE MORE THAN WE CAN INDIVIDUALLY WE DECIDED TO ASSEMBLE A TEAM OF INDIVIDUALS TO HELP GENERATE FUNDS AND CREATE AWARENESS FOR MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.
Race4MS was founded by the Blake Family and Sylvie Schurch in 2009. Both the Blake and Schurch families have close personal ties to Multiple Sclerosis. Pippa Blake has been living with MS since the early 90’s and Sylvie’s father was diagnosed with MS 10 years ago.
Inspired by the idea that collectively we can achieve more than we can individually we decided to assemble a team of individuals to help generate funds and create awareness for Multiple Sclerosis.
Race4MS has several primary goals. The first is to generate funds and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis in the hopes that one day a cure will be found for this incredibly debilitating disease.
The second is to provide funding and awareness for the local chapters of the MS Society of Canada which provide resources and vital services for those living with MS in their own community.
The final goal of our program is to provide a unique, challenging and exceptionally rewarding experience for our team of dedicated fundraisers. Ironman is a sport that brings the best out in people and requires inspired people who are up for the challenge.
