IDEAS AND INSPIRATION
As you know, The May 50K is a virtual fitness and fundraising challenge and with every step you take and every kilometre you clock, you are taking us closer to finding a cure for MS!
Besides moving your way through May, there are also other fun ways of raising funds!
Organising your own event can be a great way to involve your friends, family, or work colleagues in your personal challenge to fight MS. It can be as simple as you like and it's a way to give something back to those that are supporting your efforts.
Do something that you'll enjoy. Ask your friends for help and most importantly, have fun!
