By 2025, we want to be in the final stages of testing treatments for everyone with MS. Treatments that slow or stop disability progression.
We believe £100 million could take us to a future where no one has to worry about MS getting worse. And we need your help to get there!
The good news is we’re already over halfway to our ambitious target, and by joining #TeamStopMS you can help us reach our goal – and have some fun in the process!
About the campaign
Recently we launched our #TeamStopMS campaign as part of our Stop MS appeal. Our campaign focused on securing media coverage, lots of social media activity and asking people to sign up to #TeamStopMS via a series of marketing emails and The Buzz. You may have also seen our #TeamStopMS film featuring a host of our celebrity supporters: Kit Harington, Rose Leslie, Scott Mills, Andy Serkis, Ainsley Harriott, Ivo Graham and Alun Armstrong.
The film sees the stars ‘audition’ in front of an MS Society panel to join #TeamStopMS and help fund life-changing MS research. Kit takes part in a bucket collection with Alun Armstrong, and Rose undergoes a bike-athon fundraiser with DJ Scott Mills.
If you’ve not yet seen it, you can watch the video here.
