Due to the current situation, we have made some changes to the Miles for MS event for the MS Trust. As the MS Trust team are working remotely, we cannot send you an MS Trust t-shirt and Miles for MS tracker upon registration. With this being the case we are offering all new participants the chance to sign up to Miles for MS for FREE.
Miles for MS is the MS Trust's very own virtual distance challenge, where you pick your own distance to track and complete over May and how you would like to complete it. Whether it is half a mile or 100 miles, you pick how far you want to go and do it your way! Walk, wheel, arm cycle, run… it’s up to you!
We believe keeping active at times like this is so important for our physical and mental health, and getting involved in a Miles for MS challenge in May is a great way to motivate you to keep moving! Collecting sponsorship with your challenge could help our Enquiry Team to continue to provide trusted information for everyone with MS who needs it, at this uncertain time.
If you raise £125 you will receive your very own Miles for MS medal, raise £140 you will get a medal and an MS Trust t-shirt (please note: these will be shipped to you once our office re-opens).
