MSNZ is involved with various national and international events to raise funds to support those affected by MS.
Kiss Goodbye to MS is the only international fundraising campaign for multiple sclerosis (MS). It is a way for everyone to do something fun, exciting, glamorous, weird or whatever, to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis. If you would like to fundraise for MSNZ visit our Kiss Goodbye to MS page and register your fundraiser today.
If you need some inspiration we have plenty of ideas to get you going here.
Monday 28th August – Sunday 3rd September
Annually MSNZ runs a campaign during this week to raise awareness nationally for MS as a chronic condition affecting New Zealanders and highlighting the needs of those living with the condition.
Regional Societies across the country hold Street Collections and events to raise vital funds for the work they do supporting people living with and supporting those with MS in their local communities. Regional Societies require the support and generosity of volunteers to help with their Awareness Week events. If you can spare a few hours please contact your Regional Society via our regional contacts page.
A day to celebrate global solidarity and hope for the future. World MS Day is officially marked on the last Wednesday of May. Events and campaigns take place throughout the month of May. It brings the global MS community together to share stories, raise awareness and campaign with and for everyone affected by multiple sclerosis.
In 2009, the MS International Federation (MSIF) and its members initiated the first World MS Day. Together we have reached hundreds of thousands of people around the world, with a campaign focusing on a different theme each year.
World MS Day 2018 will take place on Wednesday 3oth May and the theme will be ‘Research’.
MSIF provides a toolkit of free resources to help everyone to take part in World MS Day. Anyone can use these tools, or make their own, to create positive change in the lives of more than 2.3 million people around the world.
