The MS Readathon is an iconic reading-based fundraiser that found its beginnings in schools across Australia in 1979. It encourages people of all ages to read and improve their literacy whilst at the same time empowering them to make a difference in the lives of people living with multiple sclerosis.
“I’ve always loved reading. It feels so good to be able to put my passion for books towards something useful. Through sponsorship, I can help the lives of almost 24,000 Australians suffering from MS. It’s fun to be able to read for a good cause,” Year 6 Cedars’ student, Jazzy said.
Taj Sim (2 Blue) is participating in the MS Readathon, too. Together they have already raised $330 for 2017.
Participants read as much as possible during August and ask friends and family to sponsor them either online or by giving a donation. This money goes towards providing vital and much needed support and services for people and their families living with MS, whilst the search for cure continues.
We need more people to sign up to read for a reason and fundraise for families living with the sometimes devastating impact that MS can have.
