Longest charitable flight ever undertaken makes fighting Multiple Sclerosis global, exciting
Mission overview video
Dared to dream
A very bold, perhaps crazy, idea
Fly a small 40-year old plane more than around the world, something less than 300 people have ever done before, to share the freedom and joy of flight with people with MS from 30 countries, and use the uniqueness of the undertaking to raise global awareness and educate about MS.Records & stats Countries & itinerary How the idea was born
Breaking with tradition for impact
Old methods don't work anymore in a busy, fast-moving world. Informing and educating needs to captivate and excite. This is what it takes to raise above the 2,000 awareness days taking place each year and cure the compassion fatigue plaguing both the media and the public.Why others have failed Our impact Why we succeeded
Making the "invisible" disease visible. And better understood.
Got millions worldwide to listen by making learning about MS exciting, relevant
Generated unprecedented global media interest in MS, bringing MS to the evening TV news often for
the first time, and making MS more vivid through the voices to those with MS.

Supporting MS made fun: Events and fund-raisers
