 My MS Walk 


Join us on our sponsored walk around Wardown Park Luton to raise funds and awareness for the Multiple Sclerosis Society. You have the choice of doing either 1, 2 or 3.5 laps of the park which is 5K. Wheel, walk or even get a friend to push you round the laps, the choice is yours, however many you can manage. Free t-shirt for everyone who registers. Get your friends, family and work colleagues to sponsor you to raise money for a worthy cause, or even join us on the day. Make sponsorship easy by using the link to our JustGiving page for the 'STOP MS' appeal.   https://www.justgiving.com/teams/mymswalkluton2019  and click on Joint the team!


As we are working in partnership with Luton Wardown Parkrun to put this event on, 'dont panic 'you dont need to run' but if you register with them for FREE you will be provided with your own unique barcode to print off and bring with you on the day  which will enable you to get a time when completing the number of laps you chose to do. Register here for FREE you only need to do this once.  https://www.parkrun.org.uk/register and follow the instructions.


Registration available on the day by 8:45.


We look forward to seeing you there!




*** The Stop MS Appeal ***


More than 100,000 people in the UK have multiple sclerosis, and hundreds more have a friend or family member with the condition who they support on a regular basis. In the UK alone, there are 5,000 new diagnoses a year. Every one of them shares the uncertainty of life with MS. It is a debilitating condition that affects millions around the world indiscriminately.


If someone close to you has MS, you already know there is no cure for this chronic neurodegenerative condition. It destroys lives. It devastates families. It hits people in the prime of life, and shatters dreams for the future.


Decades of research has probed and challenged MS. Today we have treatments that can reduce relapses and slow the worsening of disability in relapsing MS. But that is not enough. We want to Stop MS in its tracks for everyone, including those with progressive MS. Research successes — many funded by the MS Society — mean that we now have an unprecedented opportunity to develop a programme of effective treatments that could slow or stop the damage caused by MS. But we simply do not have the money to make it happen.


The Stop MS Appeal aims to raise £100m to revolutionise treatment and change the course of MS. Your support can dramatically improve the management of MS symptoms and potentially bring MS to a halt.


*** The MS Society ***


The MS Society has a huge wealth of information for anyone diagnosed with MS and anyone caring for someone with MS as well as anyone interested in more information about the condition and what we are doing to help. Visit https://www.mssociety.org.uk
