Get Involved in the MS Community By the LEMTRADA Team • May 25, 2017
Whether you have relapsing MS or know someone who has it, there are plenty of ways to get involved in the MS community and meet people like you who are fueled with determination to raise awareness about MS.
Challenging yourself and relapsing MS can be a very rewarding experience, and meeting like-minded people is also a plus. So now you’re probably wondering how to get in on the fun.
Well, throughout the year, the National MS Society offers a ton of these events—and they take place all across the country!
You can either participate in an event or take on one of the many opportunities to volunteer as well.
Each city is unique, so each MS event is unique, but here are some events you might want to take a look at:
Bike MS events take place throughout the country in the Spring, Summer, and Fall seasons. Go for a nice ride with a team or by yourself if you prefer, and raise some money along the way for a good cause. There are over 100 rides a year—ranging from 15 to 150 miles long, so there’s something for everyone.
Walk MS events are offered in cities all across America in the Spring and Summer. The walking distances vary, and if you can’t participate physically, you can participate online by virtually experiencing the walk and still fundraise for MS research. Join or start a team today!
Swim for MS
Swim for MS welcomes individuals and teams to host events and raise money for MS research. It’s a different kind of program because you can participate anytime from anywhere and create your own events. You can have pool parties, swim contests, one-day events, and more—the choice is yours!
Muckfest is an outdoor adventure for active MSers, their families, and friends to fundraise for MS as well as challenge themselves. The event takes place all over the country and features fun, complex obstacle courses that participants must get through to make it to the finish line.
LEMTRADA Patient Events
These events feature information about relapsing MS and LEMTRADA as a relapsing MS treatment option. At these events you’ll get the knowledge you need to make informed treatment decisions while getting to meet others in the MS community. And feel free to bring a care partner!
As you can see, there is a wide variety of MS events to attend. Participating in these events not only raises awareness and arms you with information, but also gives you the chance to meet some strong and inspiring people along the way.
These types of events are known for bringing people together. And they’re a great source of knowledge, community, and inspiration. So if you’re not already involved, find a way to get involved today!
