MS-Express: Campaign for World Multiple Sclerosis Day – Health

In the lead-up to World MS Day, 120 MS Express participants did their best while walking and cycling. They covered a total of 3,760 kilometers and collected 2,626 euros for the MS-Liga Vlaanderen. With MS-Express, MS-Liga Vlaanderen wants to shine a light on MS and raise funds to support people with MS.

Today, May 30, is World Multiple Sclerosis Day. The goal is to raise awareness of the disease, but also to mobilize and unite people with multiple sclerosis around the world. The theme of World MS Day is “Connectivity”.

The theme of communication is also reflected in the MS-Express organized by MS-Liga Vlaanderen between 23 and 29 May. said Luc de Groot, MS-Liga Vlaanderen Director.

MS Express is inspired by the Orient Express. This famous luxury train provided transportation throughout Europe, with Istanbul as its final destination. On MS-Express, participants commute virtually to the destinations of the Orient Express. The kilometers traveled jointly determine the city in which they arrived. This year, the participants covered 3,760 kilometers and thus reached their final destination.

Exercise is important for people with MS

“With MS-Express, we not only want to bring people together and raise money, but also encourage people to exercise. Research shows that sport and exercise are important and remain important for people with multiple sclerosis,” says Director De Groote.

Multiple sclerosis is an intractable autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system. This central nervous system includes the brain and spinal cord. If you have MS, the myelin layer, the protective layer around the nerves, is damaged by your immune system. The disease leads to various visual symptoms and the course of the disease is unpredictable and very diverse. The disease affects about 13,000 Belgians.

To achieve this, the organization is active in various fields. It educates people with multiple sclerosis and their environment, but also provides psychological, social, and administrative support. The regional branches of MS-Liga Vlaanderen also organize all kinds of activities for people with multiple sclerosis and their environment.
