Not all heroes wear capes but they all love to read! Get inspired to embark on a magical journey to read as much as you can this August!
Just by signing up you’re already changing lives!
Hey! I am Red the MS Readathon Unicorn. Thank you for signing up to the MS Readathon, just by signing up you are helping people living with MS and their families. Did you know the MS readathon has been happening for over 40 years? Ask your parents if they ever did the readathon! I can’t wait to see the books you will read during August. You can log all your books over in your dashboard and see your virtual bookshelf fill up with each book ticked off!
How to fundraiseEvery magical journey that you go on this month can help a kid affected by multiple sclerosis, which can be very hard on kids! There are many ways to fundraise during the MS Readathon. You can see all of them on the fundraising tips page here.
Why don’t you start by asking your family to donate $2 for each book you read?
Resources and fun things!
Whether your child is discovering their inner hero, embarking on a great quest or taking a journey beyond the stars in August, we have something they will love. Head to our resources page to download rainy day colouring in, printable bookmarks, posters and so much more. Or, if you’re looking for a little advice on the fundraising side of things, don’t worry, we have some great ideas!
Concerned about your child’s privacy?
Don’t worry, so are we. Personal information is only available when you are logged in to your dashboard, and no one will be granted access to your child’s details. We won’t ask your child for a photo, instead we have created 6 awesome MS Readathon Avatars that will take your kids on their reading journey. Any third party sites we recommend are monitored to make sure they remain child friendly, however, we can’t be held responsible for changes to content.
