The MS Moonlight Walk is one of MS Queensland’s flagship events, with hopes of raising $300,000 as part of the October 2021 event.
The walk has been running for over 20 years, and over this time a wonderful community has been created, consisting of people with a desire to make a real impact for those living with MS.
Davies Park, West End
For those joining us at Davies Park, West End in Brisbane – choose between a leisurely and safe 3km, 5km (both wheelchair accessible) or 10kmcourse. Walkers on all courses will be supported by course marshals, volunteers and refreshment stations.
It’s a spectacular sight to witness the sea of lanterns as our 10km walkers stroll along the northern side of the Brisbane river, towards the Botanic Gardens. After circling the lush gardens, walkers make their way across the Goodwill Bridge and back along the southern side of the river and the Southbank Parklands on their return to Davies Park.
The MS Moonlight Walk is the perfect event to enjoy time with family and friends and take in the views of the Brisbane city at night.
In Your Neighbourhood
Want to take part in the Walk to Fight MS closer to home? With our ‘In Your Neighbourhood’ virtual option you can! On Friday 15 October, you can light up the streets of your own neighbourhood wherever you are across Queensland!
Register for the MS Moonlight Walk – In Your Neighbourhood, and you will receive a welcome pack, your MS Lantern, plus your personal online fundraising page to spread the work and raise money for Queenslanders living with MS.
Whether you’re joining us to walk along the iconic Brisbane river, or you are lighting up your local area and choosing your own distance, each walker will receive their very own lantern to illuminate our belief that no one should face MS alone.
The MS Moonlight Walk – the Walk to Fight MS raises much needed funds to support the thousands of Queenslanders living with MS. Giving people living with MS access to support services. These services include our NeuroAssist information line, specialist nursing services, wellness programs and financial support. Your funds also power research into better treatments, and with your support, our hope is that one day there will be a cure for MS.
Romance on the MS Moonlight Walk
A couple who got engaged at our last MS Moonlight Walk in Brisbane have shared their story ahead of our next event happening in two weeks (15 Oct).
Braydon Bailey is 25 and lives with MS and at our fundraising event proposed to his girlfriend with some help from his friends and family (see image attached).
The team wore shirts that said ‘keep calm and say yes’ then met the couple on course where Braydon got down on one knee.
