Miles for MS is the MS Trust’s accessible distance challenge which takes place throughout May.

Participants set their own distance challenge to complete over the course of the month, track their distance and collect sponsorship as they go.

In a recent survey, the MS Trust asked some of its 2019 Miles for MS participants what they gained from taking part in the event.

Most (91 per cent) of those who took part in the survey said they “intend to exercise more as a result of taking part in Miles for MS”.

The top three physical benefits people found from taking part in Miles for MS were increased energy levels, improved sleep quality and an increase in stamina.

According to the survey, those who took part in Miles for MS felt happier, more confident and found that their focus and concentration improved too.

Meanwhile, 78 per cent of those who completed the survey said they found receiving sponsorship to complete the challenge “extremely motivating”.
