Tanya Benoit has received the 2014 MS Walk Impact Award. The award is for her involvement with the MS Society in raising awareness and understanding of MS in the community. She also had a team of 22 people in this years MS Walk and raised just over 4 thousand dollars. Benoit says she always does a lot of fund raising and volunteer work just to help out different groups and she lives with MS. She adds she doesn’t go out for the awards and the accolades so she was very shocked and it took her a couple of hours to realize what it was.
The award was presented at an MS group meeting here in Flin Flon Wednesday night by Robin Searle from the MS Society’s Parkland Chapter.
