Description

The MS Readathon inspires kids to read as much as they can, all for an incredible cause. The rules are simple. Read whatever you like, as much as you can, during the entire month of August. This year’s MS Readathon will be a magical quest, and the adventure kicks off on Saturday, 1 August.
 
Children can register with their school (teachers, you can register your class) or individually. Best of all, by joining our quest, not only will you awaken a love of reading, you will also be helping children who have a parent living with a neurological condition.
 
To make the MS Readathon more fun than ever before, we’ve got a brand new interactive website that lets kids write book reviews and rate their favourite reads. Fundraising has also never been more fun!
 
Funds raised from the MS Readathon will help fund vital support services, like the special Family Camps. These camps provide an opportunity for kids who have a parent living with a neurological condition to spend quality time with their family, learn more about neurological conditions and bond with other kids who are sharing a similar journey.
 
You can register your interest in the 2020 MS Readathon now, so that you'll be the first to hear when registrations officially open!
