About the MS Readathon
The MS Readathon inspires kids to read as much as they can, all for one incredible cause. The rules are simple. Read whatever you like, as much as you can, throughout the month of August.
Children can register with their school (teachers, you can register your class) or individually. Best of all, by joining our quest, not only will you awaken a love of reading, you will also be helping kids who have a parent with multiple sclerosis.
The fun filled MS Readathon
While we all appreciate a classic, we also know that children today want a modern approach (as do their time-poor parents).
So, to make the MS Readathon more fun than ever before, we’ve built a fun, interactive website that lets kids write book reviews and rate their favourite reads. Fundraising has never been more fun. Kids love the MS Readathon and it’s never been easier or more exciting to take part.
Kids helping kids
Funds raised from the MS Readathon will help fund vital support services, like the special MS Family Camps and Family Fun Days. These events provide an opportunity for kids who have a parent living with multiple sclerosis to spend quality time with their family, learn more about multiple sclerosis and bond with other kids who are sharing their journey.
These programs are in huge demand, and to make sure everyone who needs them can go, your help is urgently needed!
