The SUP4MS is a social Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) on Lake Ontario to raise awareness and funds for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada. The SUP4MS started as a 65km paddle by Mike Sandusky and Grant Kennedy from Hamilton to Toronto. This year our goal is to eclipse $75,000 in funds MS!

The event has grown to include over 100 paddlers on the water with the 10km Toronto Island route. The route takes about 2 hours and takes in scenic views of the skyline and a fun portage across the island.

In 2009, Mike’s sister Angela, was diagnosed with MS. It was Angela who first sparked Mike’s interest in surfing - the sport that would become his passion and business. The SUP4MS is Mike’s pledge to all MS sufferers and especially his sister, who is an energetic teacher and inspiration to many young minds.
