We suggest you set your fundraising target at £100 but whatever you raise, you'll be supporting life-changing MS research.
Here's 3 steps to get started.
- Set up a JustGiving page. You can set up an individual page or a team page and all fundraise together
- Personalise your page with pictures, updates and your reason for walking. You’re joining an incredible community from across the country and your story may inspire someone else to get involved or donate
- Share the heck out of it. Your JustGiving page is the quickest and easiest way to share your story and kick-start your fundraising. You can ask people to donate to your page or maybe even get them to come along on the day and do the walk with you. The more people you talk to, the bigger your fundraising amount will be.
We've made this handy checklist to help you on the day.
Checklist for the day
- Comfortable walking shoes
- Breathable/waterproof clothing - be prepared for all weather!
- Orange accessories - we want to paint the streets orange so come with as much orange as possible
- Bottle of water - we will have water available, but we recommend you bring your own as well
- Phone/camera - make sure you take loads of photos to remember your fantastic day. Share them with all your friends (and us too please!) using #MSWalk and tagging our social media accounts
- Cash - there’ll be lots of merchandise and refreshments for you to buy so come prepared!
Ways to get involved
- General volunteer: If you just want to help out and aren’t worried about what jobs you do this is the role for you.
- Rest area volunteer: Based at rest areas along the route, these volunteers hand out water, snacks and cheers to all our walkers, rollers, and strollers
- Venue volunteer: These people are based at the start and finish lines. They help with things like checking people in, handing out course maps and medals, and cheering walkers over the start and finish lines.
Volunteer as a group
Volunteering can be more fun when you're surrounded by family and friends. If you want to help as part of a group, please let us know when you register and we'll make sure you're all together. Do check all your team members sign up, so we have all the information we need to look after everyone on the day.
Get your company involved
All the money we raise from MS Walk Manchester in 2020 will go to the Stop MS Appeal. If you'd like your organisation to be a part of that there's a few ways to get involved:

- offer products in kind for walkers to sample
- provide a rest area for walkers on the route
- become an MS Walk sponsor or corporate partner
