Christine Sinclair, Olympic gold medallist and captain of Canada’s national women’s soccer team is committed to the fight against multiple sclerosis.
The National Women’s Soccer League player, 13-time Canadian Player of the Year, and Best FIFA Special Award winner broke the all-time international goal record in 2020 with her 188th international goal, but she is not stopping at international trophies. As she prepares for her 23rd international season, the Canada Soccer women’s national team captain is also committed to the fight against multiple sclerosis, a disease her mother has. That’s why Christine understands the daily impact of this disease on the lives of those who suffer from it… and also on their loved ones.
An annual campaign to raise funds
She uses her celebrity status to call on all Canadians to join together to raise much-needed funds and awareness about MS. Donations that help fund research, support, and services that will have a major impact on the lives of people affected by MS. Canada has one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis in the world, with over 90,000 Canadians living with the disease. Christine Sinclair has been involved with the MS Society of Canada for six years now. She said, “Multiple sclerosis has had a direct impact on my family, and I understand what people with MS go through. It’s important that we come together to raise funds and awareness for the MS Society”.
