World MS Day World MS Day is officially marked on 30 May each year. 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 2019, the theme is ‘My Invisible MS’ and the campaign is about raising awareness of the invisible symptoms of multiple sclerosis and the unseen impact of MS on quality of life, to give a voice to everyone affected by MS and challenge common misconceptions.
Check out the fantastic events being run by our MS community Fundraisers to celebrate World MS Day 2019:
