The Women Against Multiple Sclerosis Luncheon is back at the Fairmont Vancouver Hotel for a fifth year on Nov. 22.
This year, WAMS is honouring Burnaby soccer legend Christine Sinclair,who will be recognized at the event for her outstanding support of the MS community.
The three-time Olympian and Canadian women’s soccer team captain has been one of Canada’s most public figures in the campaign to end MS, supporting A&W's Burgers to Beat MS and serving as honorary chair of the MS Society Acts of Greatness campaign.
An initiative of the MS Society of Canada, WAMS is a network of female leaders who have a keen desire to use their knowledge and influence to inspire others. The luncheon attracts 400 leading professionals from a wide range of industries in support of the movement to end MS. In addition to raising funds to support MS research, the luncheon functions as a networking event that provides table purchasers and sponsors high profile exposure.
“This event is always one of the highlights of the year for us,” says Cindy Elliott, Chair of the WAMS BC Committee.“We’re thrilled to be celebrating the incredible achievements made by the amazing women who are working towards a future without MS.”
Additionally, WAMS announced Zahra Al-Harazi as the guest speaker for this year’s luncheon. Zahra is among Canada's most successful entrepreneurs and has helped countless individuals realize their potential for success.
