2023 Melbourne MS Mega Badminton


Aside from looking forward to joining others in the fun and atmosphere on the day, I’m taking part to raise funds to support people living with multiple sclerosis.

Multiple sclerosis affects more young people than any other chronic neurological condition and average age of diagnosis is 30. It can strike anyone at any time and the symptoms vary so widely.

For instance, can you imagine waking up one day unable to do the everyday things you would usually take for granted? Like not being able to see properly (or at all), you physically can’t get out of bed, can’t walk to the phone to call someone – anyone – or live a life without pain?

All of a sudden your world has changed.

By being part of this event, and because of your generous sponsorship, the funds we raise will allow people living with multiple sclerosis to access vital MS Plus Support Services. Services such as MS Plus Peer Support Groups, connecting people who are newly diagnosed with those who have lived with multiple sclerosis for a number of years, or the Plus Employment Support Service keeping Aussies living with multiple sclerosis in the work force.

Thank you again for your support.

Support Join the Fight Against MS: Support the MS Badminton Mega Challenge with Your Donation

Thursday 30th Mar

I hope this message finds you well. I am reaching out to you today to ask for your support for the MS badminton mega challenge. This initiative aims to raise awareness and funds for multiple sclerosis (MS) research, advocacy, and support programs.

As you may know, MS is a chronic and unpredictable disease that affects millions of people worldwide. There is no known cure for MS, but with the right treatment and support, people with MS can manage their symptoms and lead fulfilling lives. However, access to healthcare, medication, and rehabilitation services can be challenging for many individuals living with MS.

That is why we are organizing the MS badminton mega challenge to raise funds for MS research and support programs. We are calling on individuals and organizations like you to join us in this effort by making a donation to support our cause.

Your donation, no matter how big or small, can make a difference in the lives of those affected by MS. It will help us provide essential services to people living with MS, such as access to healthcare, medication, and rehabilitation. Your contribution will also help fund research that can lead to better treatments and ultimately, a cure for MS.

I understand that times are tough for many people, but any support you can give will be greatly appreciated. Your donation will help us achieve our fundraising goals and make a positive impact in the lives of those affected by MS.

To make a donation, please visit https://www.msmegachallenge.org.au/s/4539/6123. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about our initiative, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for considering our request for support. Your generosity and kindness are greatly appreciated.

Best regards,

Kumar Umesh
