The National MS Society is closely monitoring the latest developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic and we are taking proactive steps to protect people affected by MS, our event participants and the broader MS community. Based on recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we will not host Walk MS events through June in person. Instead, we will continue to fuel life-changing breakthroughs for people affected by MS through an exciting virtual fundraising experience.
You can still make a difference through #virtualwalkMS:
- Fundraise: Take advantage of your online Fundraising Center to let people know you’re participating virtually in Walk MS or start a Facebook Fundraiser to let everyone know why this mission matters to you. You’ll still have access to all the great tools and resources you’ve come to know and love
- Build Your Team: Challenge your friends and family to join you—virtually, of course! People with MS are counting on us to do whatever it takes
- Celebrate Your Walk, Your Way: Whether it’s on a home treadmill or a walk around the block with your dog, on your site’s Walk MS date (or whenever it’s convenient for you) put on your orange or Walk MS finest and show us how you’re celebrating by using #virtualwalkMS on social media to share photos and more
