“The MS Readathon, the iconic children’s reading-based fundraiser, is calling for literary-minded adults to get involved and raise much-needed funds for multiple sclerosis. Take up The Novel Challenge and register yourself – or, if you’re a member of a book-club, join as a team!”
I’m a bit late on this, as obviously I don’t live in Australia & hadn’t heard about this before, but a lovely reader alerted me to its existence, remembering that my lil’sis has MS. BUT – there’s still time to get your reading on!
