Reconnecting in 2021

Whilst 2021 is still unknown, we have high hopes for coming together in 2021 for some fun outdoor activities. If things change, we'll be sure to update you but we're excited to get planning for them. We know summer is a little way away yet though. We’ve therefore launched an exciting new initiative called Game Over for MS in the meantime.

Game Over for MS

Looking for something to keep you busy during lockdown? If you, or someone you know is into computer games, then we’ve got the perfect thing for you!

Game Over for MS is our brand-new offering which allows you to play your favourite games and raise funds for Stop MS. In other words, you’ll be gaming for good!

How to make your gaming pay

There are lots of ways you can raise money whilst gaming. Why not hold your own fundraising livestream or organise a gaming tournament with a donation to enter? You could tackle a sponsored challenge run, or ask for donations to build something amazing. You could attempt the MS Society logo or the structure of a nerve cell. Find more ideas on our website here.

Ready to put your gaming to good use?

It’s easy to get involved. To get started all you need to do is visit the website here to set up a fundraising page on Tiltify. Don’t want to do it on your own? Simply set up separate fundraising pages on Tiltify and then create a team so you can work towards one target. Once you’ve set up your streams, promote your event and tell your community, followers, and friends to join in.

If you need any support or have any questions, you can click on this link to contact us on Discord. Discord is a group-chatting digital platform originally built for gamers, but it has since become popular for many kinds of communities. It’s an easy way to chat over voice, video and text and is the best way to stay in touch with like mined people in our emerging MS Gaming community. Alternatively, you can reach us by sending an email to [email protected]

So, get your game face ready, pick up your controllers and play your favourite games to help stop MS. We hope to see you online soon! For more information and to sign up, visit our website here.

Not into gaming?

If gaming isn’t your cup of tea, there’s lots of other events planned for this year. Your safety is our priority so we’ll be keeping a close eye on the Government’s guidance about group activities. However, we’re optimistic that we’ll be able to come together this summer! If activities do not go ahead, you will be entitled to a refund.

The Big Leap - World MS Day

On 30 May we’ll be hosting our exclusive Big Leap day giving you the opportunity to take the leap of a lifetime. Take part in our sky diving extravaganza to experience the thrill of jumping from up to 10,000 feet and free falling at over 120 mph!

You can join us at nine different locations, which you can find on our website here. If this sounds like the challenge for you, please register on the Eventbrite website here to pick the site that suits you. To take part, there is a registration fee of £35 and a minimum sponsorship of £430. Alternatively, email us at [email protected] or call 01382 279 378.

If you can’t make World MS Day, don’t despair. You can still take to the air at a choice of two other pre booked jump sites:

  • Whitchurch – Shropshire on 29 May 2021

  • Errol – Perth & Kinross, Scotland on 1 August 2021

Want to pick your own date and location? Simply click on this link to fill in the Eventbrite form and let us know what suits you and we’ll help you book your Big Leap.

Whatever your reason - celebrating a significant birthday, ticking it off your bucket list or getting an adrenaline rush. Join our team and help us raise vital funds to stop MS.

For more information about The Big Leap, please visit the MS Society website here.

Ultra Challenge events

If you prefer to keep your feet firmly on the ground, we have a number of Ultra Challenge events scheduled in 2021. Throughout summer, you can choose to walk, jog or run a number of scenic routes across the UK. From the stunning Dorset Jurassic Coast, to the Isle of Wight, Lake District, Peak District, and more!

Sign up for just £1 when you register for the Charity Sponsorship option before Sunday 31 January 2021 and use the code NYCHARITY. Get some things in the diary to look forward to by visiting our website for more information and signing up, here.

We hope to see you in person soon!
