Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable and debilitating central nervous system disease that affects over 25,600 people in Australia and over two million people worldwide. It may affect the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves and impacts more young people in Australia than any other chronic, progressive neurological disease. MS can cause problems with vision, balance, muscle control and other basic body functions.
Multiple Sclerosis Limited is here to ensure that no one has to face MS alone. While the search for a cure continues, MS is committed to helping people living with multiple sclerosis get the best out of life by offering vital support services including emotional wellbeing and connection programs, allied health and symptom management and assistance navigating the NDIS and My Aged Care. Your support and fundraising efforts from this trek will ensure that people living with MS can face the challenges while retaining their dreams!
There are many creative and fun ways in which you can fundraise. To help get you started we have created an Online Fundraising Resource Hub containing an A-Z guide of fundraising ideas, “how to” guides for certain events and sample press releases and corporate sponsorship letters. You will also have regular support from the Soulful Concepts team, who will help you develop a fundraising plan tailored to your network. In addition you will also be supported by MS.
