Aussie kids read 260,000 books and raised $1.7 million last year.
All to help more families living with MS

Kids helping kids

There are thousands of families living with MS in Australia. You can find out more about MS and the impact it can have on people's lives.  

All funds raised from the MS Readathon will help fund vital support and services, which include residential and in-home care, speech therapy and physio, camps, and fun days. MS Family Camps and Fun Days are in huge demand, for these families it is a rare chance to have a fun time with all the care and support their family needs. 

About the MS Readathon

Reading can take kids on incredible journeys of discovery, awaken their imagination, and build confidence. It’s always a good time to help them find inspiration and motivation to pick up a book. 

The MS Readathon has been inspiring kids to read more for 45 years, and this August, it will be more fun than ever before. We have authors and ambassadors who can share their stories, incentives, and prizes to motivate kids.

If that is not enough, all the money raised will help support the thousands of families affected by MS in Australia. We have so many stories to share about how the MS Readathon makes a huge difference to people living with MS.


Help get more kids reading

Last year Aussie kids read more than 260,000 books and this August we want to see more kids reading more books! Kids can read anything, including comics, magazines, novels, or read-along with audiobooks. We don’t mind as long as they are reading. 

Parents can register their kids for FREE. Once registered, they can log books through their online dashboard, earn badges, review books, and share their progress. They can also join a school or group. 

The MS Readathon is a magical adventure that kids will love, and together we can inspire more kids to read. All you need to do now is register your interest. We will send you an email reminder in May to officially sign up.  

If you’re in Victoria, all the books read during The MS Readathon can also be used for the Premiers Reading Challenge. 

Resources and Fun Stuff

To make reading extra fun we will be offering the first 15,000 kids who register a FREE T-shirt. By wearing their t-shirt, they will help raise awareness about MS and show others they are supporting such a good cause!  

We also have competitions to win awesome prizes that kids are automatically entered in when they hit their fundraising targets. We have fun reading trackers, colouring sheets, and bookmarks to get even the most reluctant readers excited!  

To make it easy for parents, we have pre-written emails and social posts so you can let friends and family know how they can support your little readers through sponsorship and words of encouragement.
