Unfortunately, the level of income loss we’re seeing as a result of this crisis does get a little in the way of us offering services and fundraising in the way we used to. We know there is a huge amount you as volunteers have all been doing this year, from phone calls and Zoom sessions, to quizzes and choirs. We're so grateful for everything you’re doing for your local communities.
Now, more than ever, we need support from everyone to fundraise and bring in money so we can continue to support our community. There are so many ways to do this, even whilst we can’t go outside.
Anything from a virtual cake break to sharing your skills, going for a run, or shaving your hair! Visit our webpage about fundraising from home here to discover more ways to raise money.
The Big MS Run Off!
We’ve really missed seeing our MS Superstars this year, but we want to end 2020 on a high. That’s why this November we're getting our trainers on one last time and launching the Big MS Run Off.
Anyone can sign up for our virtual running challenge. But, to make things a bit different, we’ve added the twist of some very friendly competition!
If you sign up to the Big MS Run Off, you’ll join one of two teams of runners all over the UK. You’ll be randomly put into your team and compete to see who can run the furthest during November. But don’t worry, it’s just a friendly competition!
Meet our captains
The teams will be headed up by two very special captains, Alan and Angharad. They are two of our amazing MS Superstars, already running fundraisers. Find out more about them on the Big MS Run Off webpage here. Our two MS Superstar captains will be on hand to inspire and motivate you. They’ll also share their years of running experience.
Each team will track their miles using any device. Strava is great for this because it tracks and analyses every aspect of your activity. It can also be connected directly to your JustGiving page.
Whether you're a new runner or a seasoned pro, if your challenge is to run a mile or 25, every distance counts. Your run will be added to your team’s total before we reach the virtual finish line on 30 November.
Regardless of which team wins, you’ll be helping us stride forward to ensure MS loses!
