Kiss Goodbye to MS is about hope, that together we can raise funds to accelerate research into multiple sclerosis.

There are over 25,600 Australians living with MS. At MS Research Australia it’s our mission to leave MS where it belongs, behind us. Help us Kiss Goodbye to MS once and for all and join The May 50K today. Together we can raise more funds for Australian research, targeting prevention, better treatments and cures for MS.

Let’s leave MS behind

We’re back with big goals for 2021! Register today to run or walk 50km throughout May to help us leave MS where it belongs, behind us. You can challenge yourself, take part as a social team with friends or compete as a workplace with internal teams – let’s make this our biggest year yet!


More funds for vital MS research! Over 35,600 Australians left their limits behind in 2020, together ran and walked 50 laps around the world, and raised over $6.6 million for life-changing MS research. A record-breaking year which will forever change the lives of people living with MS.

The May 50K

In 2019, it was time to change it up a little! You tested your limits, got fit and supported a brighter future for MS by walking or running 50 kilometres throughout May and raising over $2.1 million for life-changing MS research in the inaugural – what a way to kick off The May 50K!

Going Global

In 2016, Kiss Goodbye to MS took on the world and went global. We are now the biggest global community raising funds for research into MS in 13 countries across the globe.

The Beginning

Our Kiss Goodbye to MS story began in 2012 as an awareness initiative, which quickly developed into a ‘do it yourself’ style fundraising campaign. Since the launch, our fabulous MS community has almost raised $5 million for life-changing research into MS. 


Born in 2004, MS Research Australia is the largest Australian not-for-profit organisation dedicated to funding, coordinating, educating and advocating for MS research as part of the worldwide effort to solve MS.
