There will be several activities taking place in Montevideo on 31 May to mark World MS Day, including:
Act in Commemoration of WORLD MS DAY!
A meeting of EMUR to commemorate World MS Day that will take place in the conference room of UNIT Montevideo’s headquarters with partners, friends, relatives and authorities.
This has been a traditional gathering since the 1st World MS Day, and the accessible facilities are generously lent by UNIT Uruguay each year.
Before the Meeting and cocktail we will hand out orange balloons that will be signed with fiber-markers by the people present who will then make them fly to the sky in “Plaza Independencia”, facing the facilities of UNIT, where our social gathering will take place.
“Plaza Independencia” is one of Montevideo’s centric squares and the offices of the President of Uruguay are facing the plaza.
EMUR has asked the Uruguayan authorities to illuminate two emblematic buildings in Plaza Independencia in orange to commemorate and remember WORLD MS DAY to Uruguayans. We expect great media coverage with this public activity which will also be fun and entertaining to the participants.
We would like that this illumination would become a tradition for the upcoming years because the Palace of the Laws is a symbolic building where our rights are protected and laws are made to grant them.
In the morning, on May 31st, two speakers of EMUR are going to participate in an educational activity about MS given to employees of a local company. One of them will be one of our associates diagnosed 5 years ago -who is a Psychologist- and the other the President of EMUR’s Board, Mrs Susana Carballido.
