On Wednesday afternoon 28 May, Her Majesty Queen Máxima of the Netherlands will attend World MS Day at the Dutch MS Research Foundation where working groups of experts and people with MS will explore obstacles and solutions in research, care and information-provision about MS. There she will receive the first Dutch edition of the International Atlas of MS.

There are other high profile supporters coming out to support World MS Day in the Netherlands too. The Olympic medal winning Dutch speed skaters (and twin brothers) Michel and Ronald Mulder will be opening the stock exchange to mark the day.

On top of all that popular Dutch musician Wolter Kroes will be undertaking a 24 hour tour by train where he will perform a concert in all 12 Dutch provinces.

It is wonderful to have the support of these high-profile figures who choose to use their celebrity to help raise awareness and improve lives for people with MS around the world.
