Trek alongside England's greatest river through history
The Thames Path is unique, with beautiful scenery that's steeped in history, and a superb backdrop for a weekend of exhilarating challenges. Returning in September with over 5,000 fellow challengers, you'll follow England's greatest river - which meanders from its source in the Cotswolds to London.

This could be your challenge of this special year! Signing up now gives you plenty of time to prepare, train and fundraise.

Our vision is a world free from the effects of MS.
Today multiple sclerosis is relentless, painful and exhausting. But tomorrow we believe can change that. Our ultimate goal is to find a cure. Until then, we're working to make sure no one has to face MS alone. Everything we do is guided by people with MS. Because together, we're stronger.
Last year, we reached thousands of people with help and support through our MS Helpline and grants. We successfully campaigned on the issues that matter most to our community. And we continued to invest in ground-breaking research to stop MS in its tracks.
We couldn’t do this without the supporter of thousands of fundraisers like you. £10 of funds you raise could help us support someone calling the MS helpline, or £100 could pay for half an hour of MRI use, so researchers can monitor the success of clinical trials and understand MS in more detail.
