Activities have already started in the run up to World MS Day.
In Denmark, a 'Researcher in a Box' has set off on a nationwide tour as part of the Danish MS month. He is scheduled to stop off in six locations. He certainly entertained this group of shoppers - watch the video
This week marks the start of the Cannes (France) and Art Directors Club (Germany) film festivals. The World MS Day film 'Beautiful Day' has been entered into several categories, hopefully reaching a wider audience and raising awareness about MS. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for some strong results. Watch 'Beautiful Day'

In Turkey, activities for World MS Day and the Turkish MS Society’s MS Week include an exhibition of paintings of people with MS, which will be on display for ten days at one of Istanbul’s busiest shopping centres. On 26 May, there will be a bicycle tour of the city to raise money for the MS Society, and in the evening a musical extravaganza at the National Theatre with the MS Choir headlining. On 30 May, 350 people will attend a day-long conference with sessions led by doctors, physical therapists, dieticians, and people with MS.
