In the last volunteer update, we told you about the autumn phase of our ambitious Stop MS Appeal. We can see a future where nobody needs to worry about their MS getting worse, so we’re raising £100 million for research into treatments.
We’re already halfway there, but we need more MS Champions so we can reach our target by 2025.
What does an MS Champion do?
As an MS Champion, you can support the appeal by;
Encouraging people you know to raise funds and awareness
Networking to enthuse local fundraisers and community groups
Delivering presentations at events
Finding new audiences to speak to
Inspiring local businesses to get involved and support us
In return for your time, determination and enthusiasm, we’ll support you to develop all the skills you need for networking, influencing, communicating, organising and presenting.
This is a chance to be part of something amazing – helping us to stop MS.
David Allen, one of our Stop MS Champions, says:
“Having lived with primary progressive MS for over 25 years with no treatments available to me I am sure you can imagine the excitement and real sense of hope I had when researchers announced that they feel the time is right to make some real breakthroughs in the treatment for everyone living with MS, especially secondary and primary progressive MS.
I have been privileged to have been able to contribute to the development of the Stop MS campaign right from the concept stage. Not only does the success of the Stop MS appeal stand to maybe benefit me but the many other people living with MS, and the impact it has on all our lives, our families and friends.
It gives me great pleasure and satisfaction not only to raise awareness of MS and how it affects our lives, but also to hopefully inspire others to raise funds and spread the word in order to raise the funds vitally needed to help the researchers achieve their aim. Together we can Stop MS.”
