Virtual Balloon Race 2020
Up, up and away for World MS Day
World MS Day 2020 is set to be a very different affair to previous years. The international day of awareness and fundraising is met with a whole new set of challenges this year. Now, more than ever the MS community need support and advice.
In light of this, MS Ireland decided that this year’s World MS Day should go off with a BANG! (Virtually)
There are over 9000 people in Ireland living with MS and so we are launching a Virtual Balloon Race campaign #9000balloons
Using algorithms, live weather systems and Google maps, our virtual balloon racing platform allows balloons to behave, fly and burst just like real balloons.
The premise is simple.
-Buy a virtual balloon for €5.00 – buy as many as you like!
-Customise your balloon, colour, shape, design.
-Select the rubber thickness and volume of helium.
-All balloons are released on 30th May at 9pm.
-The balloon that travels the farthest over 7 days wins the race and wins a champagne hot air balloon flight.
-There is also a signed Ireland Rugby jersey up for grabs for the most creatively designed balloon.
The beauty part is not only will we raise much needed funds and awareness on World MS Day, but also, unlike traditional balloon races that litter the countryside and endanger wildlife, our virtual balloon race is completely environmentally sound.
