Have You Heard About…Multiple Sclerosis Society?

MS Logo2013 marks the 60th year of the Multiple Sclerosis Society, a charity which provides information and support, funds research and fights for change for those with Multiple Sclerosis.

Multiple Sclerosis, or MS, is a neurological condition which affects 100,000 people in the UK, and a further 2 million worldwide. Though the cause is unknown, and as of yet no cure has been found, the MS Society is committed in their research, and is making progress.

The MS Society is the biggest charitable funder of MS research in the UK, and currently funds around 70 research projects, costing around £15 million. These projects research the cause of MS, possible cures, symptom relief and services which can improve the day-to-day life of those affected by MS.

Of course, these research projects can only go ahead with funding, which is why I want to take on the £60 for 60 years challenge. I plan to raise (at least) £60 for the MS Society by the end of 2013. I’m not sure quite how I’m going to do it just yet, but I’ll get brainstorming and check back in with my results!
