ACTION MS Schools Project Officer, Mrs Ciara Callan visited St Pius X College, Magherafelt on Friday 22nd June 2012, for a special Awards Presentation to thank the pupils for their tremendous efforts on their recent Walk for MS.

Almost 154 pupils joined the Walk for MS team at Portglenone Forest Park on 12th June 2012. Altogether the pupils raised a fantastic total of £3434.43 in aid of Action MS, Northern Ireland’s Multiple Sclerosis Charity.

In thanking the pupils who walked this year Mrs Callan said: “Thanks to the generosity, dedication and support of St Pius X College, over many years, the Walks for MS fund the extensive range of services provided by Action MS. Action MS supports people living with multiple sclerosis, their families and carers in Northern Ireland. St Pius X College really enjoyed their morning’s walk and Action MS is very grateful for their generous support.”

Mrs Callan went on to say: “The Walks for MS first started over 30 years ago. Hundreds of people have been helped by the Action MS support team. This help includes reflexology, a listening ear service, support for children and families living with multiple sclerosis, support for young people, free legal advice and Digital Inclusion.”
