Celebrate World MS Day with Overcoming MS

Join the worldwide campaign and help us make a difference to people living with MS.

As a global MS charity, World MS Day, taking place on Tuesday 30 May 2023, is a key date in our calendar. It brings the global MS community together to share stories, raise awareness and campaign with everyone affected by multiple sclerosis. Find out how to get involved below, and help us spread awareness of multiple sclerosis across the globe.


This year's theme: Connections

We want to shine a spotlight on connections and why it is so important in the MS community to feel connected and have a strong support network. This World MS Day, we're joining charities all over the world to share stories of connection using #MSConnections.

Whether it's a special friend or family member who's been a big support to you, someone you've met through the MS community, or a healthcare professional you've connected with through your MS journey, we'd love to hear about the important connections that make life with MS that little bit easier.

Let us know by sending your story to digital@overcomingms.org.
