Race to Finish MS offers runners, cyclists, swimmers and distance athletes of all types the chance to create a world free of MS while pushing their own personal limits. Race to Finish MS is a unique program that unites individuals with the common goal of creating a world free of MS and completing an athletic endurance event. If you're registered for any race event you can race on behalf of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. You will have access to powerful online fundraising tools to turn your participation in any third-party race event into a race for a good cause. Experience, location and race distance are flexible.
*Please note the National MS Society does not purchase race entries outside of our Philadelphia Marathon program. To take advantage of this program please join the ‘Philadelphia Marathon: MS Striders’ team. See below for more information or click here.

We welcome all athletes who want to make the world a better place. Experience, location and race distance are flexible. What’s not negotiable is the commitment our runners make to raise money to benefit 14,000 local people living with MS. We highly recommend each runner raises $1,500 or more.
Although a personal connection to MS isn’t required, many of our runners have close ties to the disease. The campaign is organized by Paul Goldstone, a community leader and avid runner/Ironman competitor whose father has been living with MS for more than 20 years.
