Oceans Of Hope Auckland 2015

Oceans Of Hope Visits New Zealand

May 8th, Oceans Of Hope visited Auckland which coincided with a luncheon at the New Zealand Royal Yacht Squadron to mark Multiple Sclerosis Auckland’s 50th year anniversary.


From Sailing Sclerosis Website

The Sailing Sclerosis project, Oceans of Hope (OOH), will change the perception of multiple sclerosis by showing what is possible when people with a chronic disease are empowered to conquer their individual challenges, by engaging those whose lives are touched by MS and developing networks as a foundation for life changing behaviours.

This project aims to broaden the horizons of those who perceive themselves as trapped by their condition, either physically or mentally, and inspire them to realise that they still have potential to achieve great things.

The official sponsor of Sailing Sclerosis Oceans Of Hope is Biogen International.

A Few Words From The CEO March 2015

A Few Words From Therese Russel, CEO from the February/March Newsletter

We are off to a busy start and holidays seem like a life time ago! Multiple Sclerosis celebrates turning 50 this year and to be very precise – on 5th March 2015.  What an incredible journey it has been and continues to be.  After receiving a special grant from the Lotteries Commission, we have engaged the services of historian writer Ruth Greenway to record the history of our Society which will be available on our website later in the year.  If you have a great recall of our 50 years or know someone else who does, please contact the office and let us know.  We have compiled a list of people to interview however we are very likely to miss someone important off our list, so your help would really be appreciated.
