My MS Marathon

The UK’s most accessible marathon!

This July, My MS Marathon is back and we’re challenging you to take on your own marathon to raise money for MS-UK’s Counselling Service. Wherever you are across the country we’re asking you to join our #TeamPurple family and take on your own kind of marathon using the number 26 through time or distance and do it your way for MS-UK.

Plan your own challenge!

This is your challenge, so whether you knit, game, bake, dance, hop, skip, jump, walk, wheel or run, sign up to the challenge to help us provide a vital service that supports the mental health of people living with multiple sclerosis (MS). Simply dream up your challenge, do it in the month of July and raise £100 for MS-UK. Everyone that raises over £100 will receive an exclusive My MS Marathon 2022 medal! Sign up to take part by clicking here.

Around 130,000 people across the UK live with multiple sclerosis. That’s 1 in every 500.

MS-UK is a national charity providing vital information and emotional support to anyone affected by multiple sclerosis (MS). Alongside other services, MS-UK delivers the only national telephone counselling service specifically for people living with MS. We help people to make sense of their life with MS through a series of counselling sessions delivered by our team of professional counsellors who understand what it is like to live with MS.

Whether it’s coming to terms with a diagnosis of MS, helping people deal with a relapse, or helping with mental health issues such as anxiety, low mood or depression our counsellors are there to help people with MS live happier and healthier lives.

The cost of a counselling session with one of our trained MS counsellors is around £50. Please help us support more people through counselling by taking part in My MS Marathon this July. Thank you from all the team at MS-UK.
