On your marks, get set, go! This July My MS Marathon is back!
Wherever you are, whatever your ability you’re invited to join #TeamPurple and create your own marathon to help raise money for MS-UK’s helpline service!
Using the number 26 (the number of miles in a marathon) in any way you like, design your own fundraising challenge this summer! Set yourself a goal and achieve something amazing. Sign up and help us raise funds so we can continue the running of our helpline to provide vital emotional support and information to anyone affected by multiple sclerosis (MS).
All ideas can work and are welcome! Need some inspiration? Read on below!
The sky is literally the limit as it was for Rhona who last year, challenged herself to learn the names of 26 clouds! Read her story here!
Thought of an idea? Sign up and pledge to raise £100 for MS-UK’s helpline service. Everyone that raises £100 and over will receive an exclusive My MS Marathon 2023 medal and certificate!
To join My MS Marathon all you need to do is…
My MS Marathon will take place throughout the month of July. You can decide to take on your challenge for a day a week or over the whole month.
The challenge is open to everyone, all ages, abilities, and locations, the more the merrier! Please feel free to also involve your local gym, health club, community group to get involved too! We also actively encourage teams to take part. For example, one of your team could walk, one could run, and one could knit, the possibilities are endless!
You can keep going! If you have reached the target, why not set a new target?
We want you to enjoy raising awareness and funds to help MS-UK. Do what you can, keep your sponsors up to date and let us know if you think you might not complete your challenge so we can advise further.
A member of our fundraising team will be in contact with you shortly. In the meantime, we’d love if you could set up your JustGiving page here and join our Facebook group.
Everyone who raises £100 for MS-UK will receive an exclusive My MS Marathon medal and certificate.
