Join us on the Toga Party for MS to help us do our part in the battle to end Multiple Sclerosis around the world!
Toga Party for MS
The Toga Party for MS is an annual event organized by Gamers Giving Back, held primarily in Guild Wars 2. It’s a day full of fun activities, prizes and giveaways, intended to bring joy to players and inspire them to donate!
Volunteers from all over the world come together and organize events both on North American as well as European servers, to raise money and support the MS Walk to fund research and services in aid of those affected by multiple sclerosis.
Why we are raising money
Multiple sclerosis is not a highly understood condition, and its causes, rate of progression, and even worldwide prevalence are difficult to determine. What we do know is the effect it has on people’s lives, and that it is the most widespread neurological condition of young adults around the world.
Approximately 200 cases of MS are diagnosed each week in the United States alone, with worldwide statistics being difficult to determine, but evidence shows that countries in colder climates are more affected.
By raising money, we’re supporting the search for understanding the causes, and finding a cure for multiple sclerosis!
The Toga Party for MS is part of a fundraising initiative called MS Walk, which focuses on several important fields - funding stem cell research, such as the Canadian Bone Marrow Transplantation trial, funding studies of the genetics of MS, which have been revealing clues about the triggers and drivers of the condition, as well as advocating for accessible treatments, so that those affected by MS can get the best possible treatment based on their health needs, not their wealth.
As part of the MS Walk fundraiser, our donations will be going into groundbreaking MS research and services helping those living with MS. Some of these services include:
Financial assistance for special equipment and home care
Supportive counselling for all those affected by MS
Self-help groups and recreational programs for people with MS
Government advocacy for people living with MS
Thank you in advance for your pledge to create a more hopeful future for those affected by MS!
