THOUSANDS of people across the Limerick will have their noses buried in books this November as part of the annual MS Readathon fundraiser.

The MS Readathon is Ireland’s biggest sponsored reading initiative, which invites children, adults, and teachers to get sponsored to read as many books as they can throughout the month.

All funds raised from the MS Readathon go towards supporting people living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and their families.

MS Ireland is calling on people – from small kids and older teenagers to community groups, businesses, and books clubs – to get involved.
