1 in 3 Australians will be directly impacted by MS
The funds that you raise ensure that people living with multiple sclerosis get the vital support they need to meet their goals and live well, and ensure that no one has to face MS alone.
Here’s what you and thousands of like-minded fundraisers make possible.
Providing funding to bring new treatments closer to reality, investing in repairing myelin damage, to restore function that has been lost for people with progressive forms of the disease.
The development of three state-of-the-art MS Plus Wellbeing Centres in New South Wales and Victoria.
The first Wellbeing Centre is scheduled to open in Lidcombe, New South Wales in 2023.
These state-of-the-art centres will offer a comprehensive range of services, providing a complete wellbeing service model, helping people with MS achieve their personal goals and live to their fullest potential.
1 in 3 Australians will be directly impacted by MS through a family member, friend or colleague. The uncertainty of what lies ahead after diagnosis can be a difficult experience, and that's why MS Plus is here to make sure no one faces MS alone.

For many people with MS, the symptoms are invisible
There's been occasions where strangers have asked Rachael to get up out of a seat on a train because they perceive her as young and healthy.
“Just because you can’t see MS, you can’t judge people because you have no idea what they go through every other day. It could be a great day, but the rest of the days could be difficult. No one knows what I’m going through unless I tell them."
Rachael Hendry, MS Ambassador
