Begin Your Fundraising

The new Walk MS experience kicks off as soon as you register!

Walk MS unites the MS community in the largest gathering of its kind to raise funds and make a difference for everyone living with MS. And while there is no fundraising minimum, we encourage you to aim high and set a fundraising goal. Why? With every dollar you raise, you raise up someone living with MS, helping make life with MS a little easier and bringing us that much closer to a cure.

It’s easier than ever to raise money using your Fundraising Center. Participants who update their story on their personal fundraising page raise 5X more than those who don’t!

Along the way, we have plenty of additional resources and special prizes to keep you motivated and help you reach your goals. Visit Your Fundraising Center

With accessible routes that are stroller and mobility device-friendly, there’s nothing quite like being surrounded by people sporting their best orange gear to support the MS community. You’ll arrive at the finish empowered and inspired to keep moving toward a cure.

Circles of Support

Additionally, participants living with MS can meet up at The Center to get what you need to move your life with MS forward — whether it’s information or connections to support. Walk MS culminates with a program that serves as a visible representation that every person living with MS is supported. MS can be an isolating disease, but no one has to face MS alone.
