To all the gamers out there! Here at MS-UK, we are incredibly excited to announce the launch of our very first gaming challenge... Connect24! Whether you’re an occasional gamer or a professional streamer, everyone is welcome, so buckle up it’s time to Connect and Play for MS-UK!
Over the past year, we have all been put into lockdown, and the MS Community have found that they are potentially more isolated than ever before. That is why this World MS Day, our theme is all about connections, and bringing the MS Community together. Gaming is a great way to stay connected with others, no matter what time of day or night, or where you are in the world; there are always people to speak to on online games!
Connect24 is the gaming challenge with a difference, now is your chance to do what you love for a good cause. What’s even better is that everyone who signs up will receive their very own their very own MS-UK funky coaster for your drink, to help you stay hydrated and focused throughout your challenge. When you reach your fundraising target of £100, you will be awarded with your very own Connect24 medal and certificate!
Every single penny that you raise will help more people affected by multiple sclerosis, and we couldn’t be more excited to have you on board! Read on to find out how to get involved!
