KAMLOOPS — Hundreds of people walked and ran for a good cause Sunday morning.

The annual Scotiabank MS Walk took place at Riverside Park.

Similar walks are being held in 125 communities across the country throughout May to raise money for MS research and support services.

Luella Cousins, volunteer and community engagement coordinator the MS Society of Kamloops, says the event draws a wide range of people. 

"It draws people who have MS, people who know other people who knew MS, as well the general public. It means a lot to the people in the community to have that opportunity to come out and show their support," said Cousins. 

Canada continues to have the highest rate of MS, with no cure for the autoimmune disease.
