World MS Day

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.

What you can do to support the Campaign: 

9000 Steps Challenge: Join us on the 30th May for our 9000 steps challenge! Every step you take will represent your support for the 9,000 people living with MS in Ireland.Together we can take a step closer to providing more services and finding better treatments, and eventually a cure for MS. Register today

Coffee Morning at the MS Care Centre: with a bonanza raffle, variety of entertainment and stalls to include, homemade cakes, plants, artwork, books and flower arrangements. Hope you can join us on the 30th May!

Silent Auction: In the lead up to World MS Day 2019 artist Kevin King has kindly donated his work to MS Ireland to auction so that we can raise vital funds for our support services across the country. We are running a silent auction for Kevin’s amazing work. More info
