World MS Day 2021

World MS Day takes place every year to bring the global MS community together to share stories and raise awareness on the realities of what it’s like to live with multiple sclerosis (MS). This World MS Day is the second year of the MS Connections theme which is about connecting those living with MS to the community and quality care. Through inclusion and acceptance, MS Connections aims to tackle the social isolation and loneliness that can be experienced when living with a chronic condition.

In support of World MS Day, we have arranged various events and activities across both central and regional Queensland that you can take part in on Sunday May 30 2021.


Outdoor yoga 

To bring people together after a disconnected year, MS Queensland have worked together with The Yoga Partnership anregional councils to host free and accessible outdoor yoga throughout the state.

All yoga sessions will take place on Sunday 30 May, however the times will vary, so please check out the timetable below. To register for your local session, please head to The Yoga Partnerships website and fill out the form and select which session you’ll be joining! 

Note: We will keep updating the events below as more dates and times are locked in. Stay tuned!


Lit up landmarks
 

Landmarks all over Queensland will be lit up red in celebration of World MS Day on Sunday 30 May too! Keep an eye out in the evening at the following locations and don’t forget to take a picture of yourself in front of the landmark to share with us on social.
