WALKING FOR A CURE & LOUNGING IN STYLE

Aura Effect was truly humbled and honoured to be involved in the MS Society of Canada’s 5K walk event last weekend on May 15th in Mississauga Valley Park. We were pleased to provide glowing and illuminated VIP lounges for the 5K walkers while Starbucks and Denny’s provided coffee and pancake breakfasts’ for the hardworking participants. In the end, the MS Society’s Mississauga chapter raised a staggering $127,663.50, far surpassing their goal of $113,000.


Helping our customers in the GTA create their perfect glowing party experience is our specialty but lending our services to vital Canadian causes like the MS Society is our duty.

Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system, specifically the spinal cord, optic nerves and brain.  Myelin, the protective covering of the nerves, is targeted by the disease causing people with MS to experience nerve, balance and mobility disruptions with hearing, vision and memory loss ranging from mild to severe.

MS is three times more likely to be found in Canadian women than men with symptoms occurring anywhere from ages 15-40 years old. Currently, there are an estimated 100,000
Canadians living with the disease, the highest rate in the world.
This figure is unacceptable and it’s what keeps the MS Society of Canada striving every day to fundraise for a cure.

Aura Effect is always ready and willing to help Canadian causes so if you are involved in a charitable or nonprofit company working to help Canadians in any way please contact us and let us know how we might be able to help. To keep this big party that we call life going, we need to keep our fellow Canadians healthy. Please donate to the MS society today to help fund and find a cure for Canadians living with MS.
