The 2018 World MS Day campaign – Bringing Us Closer – is now in full swing and there are plenty of ways for people all over the world to get involved.

World MS Day is officially marked on 30 May each year. Events and campaigns take place throughout the month of May to bring the global MS community together, raise awareness of MS and campaign with and for everyone affected by MS.

The 2018 campaign is called #bringinguscloser and the theme is research.

The #bringinguscloser campaign is about connecting people affected by MS with those involved in MS research, including scientists, students, nurses, fundraisers, volunteers and more.

There are many ways to take part, whether you choose to use the research theme, the #bringinguscloser message, or simply hold a local event to bring your community together. Here are some ideas:
