MS Ireland will join with people and other MS organisations around the world to mark World MS Day on the 30th May. The 2019 campaign will be called ‘My Invisible MS’ (#MyInvisibleMS) and the theme is Visibility.
My Invisible MS will raise awareness of the invisible symptoms of MS and the unseen impact of MS on quality of life.
The campaign will give a voice to everyone affected by MS to share their invisible MS symptoms and express what you want others to know and understand about MS, in order to challenge common misconceptions and help people understand how to provide the right support.
There are many ways to get involved in World MS Day and use and adapt the My Invisible MS campaign. You can take part in the campaign online and on social media, hold an event to bring people together for World MS Day, lobby your decision makers to make positive changes for people affected by MS…there are so many possibilities!
We’ll be sharing more information and resources in Spring 2019. Watch this space!
To mark World MS Day the Tipperary South Branch is organising an ‘Awareness day’ in Cahir, Tipperary. The Branch will have an information stand there from 9 to 5 all day. They will also have raffle tickets with a special thank you to SuperValu for sponsoring a prize.
Volunteers from the Branch will be there throughout the day with information leaflets on World MS Day, MS condition, MS services, local Branch.
Join us this World MS day (30th May) for our 9000 steps challenge to help support the 9000+ people living with Multiple Sclerosis throughout Ireland.
It’s easy to join, wherever you live, whatever your fitness level, you can decide when and where you will complete your steps. You can choose to walk, run, dance, swim or even hop to complete your challenge. You can do it by yourself, with friends or family or get together a team with your work colleagues.
Every step you take will represent your support for the 9,000 people living with MS in Ireland.
