Countdown Next World MSA Day, October 3, 2018

Who is joining us into the worldwide action: A Mile (or Km) & A Candle for MSA

You can Walk or Cycle as much as you can.

Counting page will be open from August, until October 30, 2017



The population of the Earth is estimated to be 7,519,528,135 (as of July 18, 2017).  This means that statistically we can estimate that worldwide 375975* people may be affected with MSA at this time.  (*<5 cases per 100.000)


A Mile (‘s) or Km’s:

You can walk or cycle alone, with family, or friends and neighbors. Every step, every kilometer or mile(s) we will count together. The goal is to attempt to walk / cycle around the earth (40.075 kilometers or 24,901 miles around the Earth at the equator).

Let’s see how far we come this year. Send in your mileage to be tallied. If you are able to get sponsors for your steps, your wheelchair distance, your miles or kilometer, please forward the proceeds for research to your local MSA support groups.

A Candle:

We want to have a candle lit for everyone that may be affected with MSA and for all those loved ones who have lost their battle in the past.

You can light your candle at home alone, or with friends and family, or during your local activity that is planned for World MSA Day, October 3, 2017

As candles are lit around the globe, a virtual 24-hour wave of light will be created as it moves from time zone to time zone.

Please light your candles at 20:00 hrs / 8 p.m. in your local time zone for one hour.

The flame of the candles will unite family and friends all over the world and bring awareness to MSA.

If you organize an event, you can sell candles to all participants and send the proceeds to benefit and support local MSA groups. Each single $, €, £ , ¥ counts. (MSA Support Groups who are interested please forward your full information, so we can add your info on the global list).

A Mile and A Candle… please do as much as you are able to do, each step, each inch or centimeter is a start for the 40.075 kilometers or 24,901 miles needed.

Each single candle counts toward the 357.944* needed.

Thanks to all who are willing to create awareness for MSA.
