There are over 33,300 people living with multiple sclerosis (MS) in Australia and everyone’s experience is unique. Living with MS is a complex and unpredictable condition with varied symptoms that range from mild to severe. They may flare up now and then, or last for long periods of time.
When taking your My Mega Challenge for MS, you might feel pain, muscle spasms and fatigue – common symptoms that people living with MS battle with daily. While these feelings might not be EXACTLY what someone living with MS experiences, you will come out of the challenge with a better understanding of what MS symptoms are like.
Make an impact this November in the My Mega Challenge for MS!
Share your challenge with friends, family and colleagues to raise funds to ensure that no one has to face MS alone.

Nothing is impossible if we dare to face our fears and believe in ourselves. The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.Carol Cooke AM PLY
The events raise money for the MS Go for Gold Scholarship program - scholarships which enable people living with multiple sclerosis to follow a dream - and also fund the Plus Financial Assistance Program and services to directly benefit people living with multiple sclerosis.
