About the Albert Park MS Walk and Fun Run
Every year on the first Sunday in June, thousands of people come together in Melbourne to walk and run in support of Australians living with multiple sclerosis. Taking part in the 2013 MS Walk and Fun Run will not only improve your overall health and fitness, it will also make you feel warm inside for contributing to such a great cause. Stroll or power-walk, travel by wheelchair, pram or stroller, wear serious sports gear or wacky team costumes. Whatever you choose, you will be helping thousands of Australians who are living with multiple sclerosis.
The MS Walk and Fun Run is organised by MS Australia and our own MaxNRG Personal Training team are once again helping support the event by organising the ‘warm up’. Since the first event in 1989, MS Walk and Fun Run participants have raised millions of dollars to fund essential services and support for people living with MS.
The MS Walk and Fun Run will go ahead rain or shine. Come prepared with sunscreen, warm layered clothes and wet weather gear to ensure you have a great day no matter what the weather brings. Bring your own water bottle and a snack or two to keep your energy levels up.
MS Fun Run Event Details
If you are feeling energetic, why not take on the challenge of completing the 5km or 10km routes at a faster pace than a walk and reach for a personal best on the Melbourne MS Fun Run while being timed with a professional chip timing system. Timing chips are attached to all race bibs and the chips will activate automatically as you cross timing mats at the start and finish lines, recording the time you take to complete the course.

Do it for Charity!!!
This is one of the major events held in Melbourne and a vital part of this event is to raise money for MS Australia. By participating and fundraising for the MS Walk and Fun Run, you are helping MS Australia – ACT/NSW/VIC to provide a range of essential services and support for people living with multiple sclerosis.
MS Australia provides programs and choices to people with MS including a range of residential facilities, social support programs, accommodation support services, attendant care in private homes, involvement with regional centres and country link programs. These services are vital to maintain the independence and dignity of people with MS.
MS Australia is also the largest funder of MS research in Australia through its research branch MS Research Australia.
