MSA Trust

Virtual Events

Welcome to a new world of fundraising!

Virtual events is a fresh and exciting way in which you can continue raising vital funds for our MSA community. Doing virtual fundraising means there is no need for a specific location but can be completed and shared online. It also gives you the freedom to fundraise wherever and whenever, you can!

How can I get involved?

Set yourself a target and complete it through local walks, runs or cycle rides (or anything really that catches your fancy!) Perhaps 100 miles in one month, or 10,000 steps-a-day… it’s completely up to you.

How can I fundraise for MSAT using my virtual challenge?

Just track your challenge progress and post it to your MSAT fundraising page (along with lot of pictures!) Family and friends can ‘see’ the effort you are putting in and sponsor you.

Below are two ways for you to track your challenge and convert it into a fundraiser:

  •  Use a running log to track and record miles covered, take a picture and post to your fundraising page.
  • Download a fitness app to digitally track your progress, and share it to your fundraising page. You can find out how to here.

 

 

 

Miles for MSAT – Your virtual fundraiser for MSA Trust. 

Challenge yourself to cover a certain distance within a certain time while walking, running, or cycling. You can even connect your fitness tracker to a fundraising page so that others can ‘see’ your effort and sponsor it.

In 3 easy steps you can use your outdoor time for a bigger goal during lockdown – ensure the Trust remains a beacon of support for the MSA community.

Please ensure you are following the UK Government’s guidance on safely exercising during the COVID – 19 pandemic, keeping 2m away from others at all times. 

 

Complete a challenge that you have always wanted to do, but just virtually! Go hard and then go straight home – a perfect way to ‘see’ the world during lockdown! You get a medal in the end – something to always remind you of the effort you had put in during challenging times .
