not all heroes wear capes, but we bet they all love to read! embark on a heroic journey to read as much as you can this april.
OVER 40 YEARS OF READING!
Do you remember MS Read-a-Thon from your own school days? The concept hasn’t changed - read whatever you like, as much as you can, from April 1st to April 30th. After 40 years, we’re starting a fun new chapter, with amazing features. We have a brand-new interactive website where kids can track the books they read, pick fun avatars and more!
We’re putting the fun into fundraising, making it easy for parents to track their child's tally and celebrate every win. Each child can earn Reward Badges for the goals they achieve. The best way to kick off fundraising is to make a donation to your child's page! This will inspire your family and friends to also donate to your child’s page. Once you have donated, don’t forget to share it on social media. You can check out our top fundraising tips here to get you started. Your fundraising quest will be easier than you think!
RESOURCES AND FUN THINGS!
Whether your child is discovering their inner hero, embarking on a great quest or taking a journey beyond the stars this year, we have something they will love. Head to our resources page to download our epic colouring page, reading chart and so much more. Or, if you’re looking for a little advice on the fundraising side of things, don’t worry, just email us. We’re here to be your sidekick and we have some great ideas!
KIDS HELPING THEIR COMMUNITY
Funds raised from MS Read-a-Thon will help fund vital support services, like the 1:1 Peer Support Program. This program connects people affected by MS living in your community with someone who can support them through their MS journey. The Peer Support Program is in huge demand and is important to making them feel less alone. To make sure everyone who needs support gets it, your help is urgently needed!
Concerned about your child’s privacy?
Don’t worry, so are we. Personal information is only available when you are logged in to your dashboard, and no one will be granted access to your child’s details. We won’t ask your child for a photo, instead we have created 6 awesome MS Read-a-thon Avatars that will take your kids on their reading journey. Any third-party sites we recommend are monitored to make sure they remain child friendly, however, we can’t be held responsible for changes to content.
