ABOUT THE MS READATHON
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, throughout the month of August. This year’s MS Readathon is now finished, but you can register your interest for the 2021 event here, and we'll keep you up to date!
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 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.
KIDS HELPING KIDS
Funds raised from the MS Readathon will help fund vital support services, like the special Family Camps and Fun Days. These camps provide an opportunity for kids who have a parent living with a neurological condition like multiple sclerosis (MS) to spend quality time with their family, learn more about the condition their parents have and bond with other kids who are sharing their journey. Family Camps and Fun Days 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.
