This year marks the 30th MS Readathon and will be running from 13th October – 13th November 2017. The very first MS Readathon was launched by Roald Dahl in 1988.
During last year’s Readathon, the children who took part in Ireland raised a €325,000 to help provide practical support to people with MS.
The Readathon encourages children to read while also supporting the MS charity. So a win – win for all!!
For kids who already love to read, the Readathon is a chance to challenge themselves with a longer or more difficult book. And for kids who aren’t as keen on reading, it’s a nice opportunity to read a book for a great cause.
