Get out of the Zone and “Shine with Sunny”


The MSF has launched a fun initiative called "Shine with Sunny" to encourage everyone with MS to particpate in National Multiple Sclerosis Education and Awareness Month (NMSEAM 2010. Through this initiative, the MSF is challenging people with MS to get outside their comfort zone and experience new people, places and activities. Joining them as they travel outside their comfort zone will be Sunny. A very cheery-looking sun character on a stick, Sunny is distributed in the Foundation’s 2010 NMSEAM Awareness Kits.

 Upon their return, they will send a photograph of themselves with Sunny, along with a short essay explaining what they did and how that took them outside their comfort zone.  The MSF will choose 50 winning entries to receive T-shirts commemorating 2010 NMSEAM.  Some will also be chosen to feature in MSFocus, the Foundation’s quarterly magazine.

 To order a free awareness kit fill out this form or email awareness@msfocus.org and get ready to “Shine with Sunny”.
