ARE YOU READY TO

Run for MS?

Did you know that you can participate in any event and fundraise for MS? Whether it's a fun run or walk, swimming challenge, bike ride, stair climb or something even more out of the box, you can Do It For MS!

HOW TO

Run for MS

Check out our Event Calendar for some upcoming events you could use to help raise funds for MS!

Once you are registered for your event, it's time to set up your fundraising page.

Many events will include set-up of a fundraising page, as part of your initial event registration. Search for "MS" and select us as your charity - the combined entity of ACT, NSW, TAS and VIC (also known as MS Limited).

If your event doesn't offer fundraising as part of set-up no stress - we've got just the page for you! Set up your own Limitless for MS Fundraising Page.

CHALLENGE 4

Ask The Boss

CHALLENGE 4 - ASK THE BOSS

Ask your employer if they would consider matching your fundraising, or making a donation through your fundraising page.

70% of companies in Australia offer ‘matching funding’ as part of their employee benefits. This means they support their employees’ charitable efforts by matching their fundraising dollar for dollar. It is a great way to double your fundraising efforts – and all you need to do is ask. Speak to your HR department and ask them for their support.

We can provide your company with any documentation they may need, including tax-deductible receipts, information about what we do and a letter of thanks and recognition.
