READ AS MUCH AS YOU CAN FROM AUGUST 1 TILL AUGUST 31 FOR THE MS READATHON
ABOUT THE MS READATHON
Embark on an epic adventure! The MS Readathon inspires kids to read as much as they can, all for an incredible cause. The rules are simple. Read whatever you like, as much as you can, in August. This year’s MS Readathon will be a magical quest, and the adventure kicks off on August 1 and wraps up on August 31. 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 ALL NEW 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 got a brand new 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.
ENTER OUR COVER ART COMPETITION!
If you were asked to illustrate the cover of your favourite book what would you draw? Well, we want to see it! We are asking you to submit your re-design of your favourite book as part of our MS Readathon Cover Art Competition. Enter NOW to be in the running to win a $300 Gift Card compliments of Eckersley’s Art & Craft.
KIDS HELPING KIDS
Funds raised from the MS Readathon will help children attend our special MS Family Camps. These camps help families living with multiple sclerosis to spend quality time together, learn more about multiple sclerosis and bond with others who are sharing their journey. MS Family Camps are in huge demand and, to make sure everyone who needs them can go, your help is urgently needed! The MS Readathon is such a wonderful way for kids to help other kids, all while falling in love with the wonder and magic of reading.
