IDEAS & INSPIRATION

The MS Walk Run + Roll is a fundraising event, raising money to support people living with MS.

All fundraising efforts, however large or small, help Australians living with multiple sclerosis to live well and thrive at home, work and in the community.

Organising your own event can be a great way to involve your friends, family or work colleagues in your personal challenge to fight MS. It can be as simple as you like and it's a way to give something back to those that are supporting your efforts.

Do something that you'll enjoy. Ask your friends for help and most importantly, have fun!

SMASH YOUR FUNDRAISING GOAL

WITH THESE FUNDRAISING IDEAS!

IN LIEU

In place of a gift for any special occasion ask friends and family to donate.

TRIVIA NIGHT

Everyone loves a quiz night! This could be from the comfort of your living room, with friends online, or down at your local pub!

BAD HABITS JAR

At home, or at work, you will be surprised how quickly a bad habits jar can fill up!

UNIFORM SPONSORSHIP

Reach out to local businesses and see who wants to support your fundraising efforts. In return you can pay it forward and wear their logo with pride.

GROOMING CHALLENGE

Still have that "iso" beard? Overdue for a haircut? Now is your chance to use that next grooming session for good!

CASUAL DAY

Looking forward to returning to work and seeing your colleagues? Why not let them choose what you wear to work in exchange for a donation?

FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD

Whether it’s a bake sale, dinner party or a cooking lesson – everyone loves to eat! Feed your friends, family and colleagues in exchange for a donation.

SAUSAGE SIZZLE

Who doesn’t love a sausage sizzle? Many local businesses and large hardware stores will allow charity groups to hold a sausage sizzle outside their stores. Remember to approach your local stores for donations of sausages and bread.

SILENT AUCTION OR RAFFLE

Get some prizes donated and you can host a silent auction or raffle, online or in person.

MATCHED GIVING

Many companies offer matching giving as part of their employee benefits. This means they support their employees’ charitable efforts by matching their fundraising dollar for dollar. It is a great way to double your fundraising efforts – and all you need to do is ask. Speak to your HR department and ask them for their support.

We can provide your company with any documentation they may need, including tax-deductible receipts, information about what we do and a letter of thanks.
