Together we are one step closer to freedom from MS

Kiss Goodbye to MS is MS Research Australia’s national fundraising campaign and asks the community to raise funds and awareness for ongoing research into MS. Whether you are planning a small breakfast with your family, wearing red lipstick in May or you are taking on a physical challenge – how you get involved is up to you. Big or small, every supporter makes a difference in funding research into MS. Together we are one step closer to our vision – freedom from MS.

Funds raised by Kiss Goodbye to MS contribute exclusively to ongoing research into MS. Since 2004 MS Research Australia has contributed more than $26 million to funding research into identifying the triggers of MS, developing better treatments, and finding cures. You can read more about the research we fund or learn about the three categories of research on our website.

But we can’t do this without you!

This May we are calling on the community to get involved and raise funds and awareness for MS research. You can fundraise from wherever you are in Australia! The wonderful thing about Kiss Goodbye to MS is you can support in whatever capacity you are able to.
