Downtown with the Japan MS Society

2012 Living with MS
On Saturday the 26th May volunteers from the Japan MS Society took to the streets of downtown Tokyo to raise awareness about multiple sclerosis (MS). The team handed out pamphlets containing information about MS. The volunteers were also equipped with World MS Day banners and bright orange t-shirts.


The public were invited to ask the lovely volunteers any questions they had about MS. The Japan MS Society aimed to raise their visibility among the Japanese public and promote World MS Day to people who may not have known about this event. World MS Day 2012 Japan was a huge success with coverage of the event as appearing in several newspapers and all 3,000 pamphlets being distributed within the busy downtown area of Tokyo.
