The MS Readathon ♥

The MS Readathon is something I look forward to as much every year as I do reading every day. It feels satisfying putting my passion for books towards something useful. 

During the MS Readathon, I like to think about other children like me who are busy enjoying stories and doing something remarkable towards a common cause. Isn’t it great that everyone can participate, no matter what their reading level is or how much money they raise?

The MS Readathon has not only sharpened my reading skills but also increased my awareness of the condition. This is a disease that happens in the central nervous system. Sclerosis means ‘scar’ or ‘hardened tissue’ and multiple is used because the damage usually happens in many places along the nerves. We do not know the cause and there is no cure.

In 2015 I was honoured to become an MS Readathon Ambassador for the first time. It gave me the chance to visit schools and encourage kids to do the MS Readathon. I created this website so I could share my love of books with other 'tweens. I held a bookstall and worked hard to help raise money for MS. Over the years I have been honoured to speak to the the press, radio and television news about this special annual event and the importance of reading. View my photo gallery HERE.

For the past couple of years I have hosted the MS Readathon's Epic Adventures Book Club alongside some of Australia's favourite authors. You can find my videos reading Matilda and The BFG on the MS Readathon Facebook page. 

We have often launched the Australian MS Readathon at my school. Funds raised have gone towards special camps for families with MS. I was so excited when I visited the first one to be held in NSW and saw where our hard-earned funds went. Check out my video below.
