40th MS Gong Ride Classic

We're taking the Challenge to fight MS!

Next May, we are taking part in the 40th MS Gong Ride!

Since 1981, this iconic ride has raised funds to help fight MS and we're now part of this incredible legacy.

Why am we fundraising?

It’s quite staggering to think that multiple sclerosis affects more young people than any other chronic neurological condition. The average age of diagnosis is 30 years, and there is no known cure.

Every person’s MS varies, but some of the symptoms are not being able to see properly (or at all), loss of balance, ability to walk, pins and needles, and chronic pain.

Your support will help people with multiple sclerosis receive the vital support, treatments, and services to help them live well at home, remain connected to work, and be part of the community.

Thank you again for your support!
