MS affects more than 11,000 people in Scotland, with a further one in four likely to know someone affected.

Morna Simpkins, director of MS Society Scotland, said: “We’re incredibly excited to launch ‘My MS Walk’, and can’t wait to celebrate communities coming together across the UK to raise vital funds for MS research.

“Scientists believe we are closer than ever to having treatments for everyone. We believe we can stop MS and, by organising your own walk, you’ll play an important part in getting us there.”
