Leave your limits behind: Join The May 50K!

This May we would like to invite you to help Kiss Goodbye to MS by signing up for our new fundraising activity – The May 50K!

Throughout the month of May we are challenging you to walk or run 50 kilometres, leave your limits behind and fundraise for life changing research into MS.

After six years of diverse and very creative ‘do it yourself’ style fundraising for Kiss Goodbye to MS, and almost $5 million raised for MS research, it’s now time for a new challenge! This May, Australians can run or walk 50km over the entire month, at the time and place of their choosing whilst raising funds to support research into MS. We’ve identified a need to revamp the campaign a little to live up to your demand for rapid change within the space of MS research. We love that you don’t accept the status quo and The May 50K is embracing your determination, willpower and attitude!

Since 2000, the treatment options for MS have increased from only one to twelve available treatments, and that’s all thanks to people just like you, working hard to ensure we can keep funding research into MS. Research is the key to changing the future of MS, and we’ve accepted the challenge to do this within our lifetime. We know you’ve got it in you to go the extra km and be an active part of the change this May.

The May 50K is your chance to test your limits, get fit and support a brighter future for MS this May. Wherever you live, whatever your fitness level, you can decide when, where and how to complete your 50 kilometres. You might decide to monitor and track your progress via a fitness app. You can do The May 50K by yourself, with friends and family or get together a team with your work colleagues. Let’s get fit this May and raise vital funds for research into MS.

Every step you take, every kilometre you clock, takes us closer to finding a cure for MS. You can help Kiss Goodbye to MS by joining The May 50K this May. Together we will change the future of MS and leave MS where it belongs, behind us.

(P.S If you love ‘do it yourself’ style fundraising, don’t worry this option is still available!)
