How to get involved

We will join with individuals and organisations across the world to mark World MS Day on Wednesday, 31st of May. This is one of the highlights of our year when we come together to celebrate and empower the 9,000 people living with Multiple Sclerosis in Ireland.

The theme for this year's World MS Day is Life with MS. How is Life with MS positively impacted for people living with MS? Life with MS can be difficult. Each day brings new challenges, which need new solutions. Share your  tips for managing these challenges and help someone else who is living with MS.
