WMS2020 is the first ever virtual congress and because it’s our 25th year we wanted to mark it in a special way. People living with muscle-wasting conditions have been hit particularly hard by the COVID-19 pandemic and we are acknowledging this by creating the opportunity for all WMS2020 Congress attendees to get involved by taking on their very own #WMS25CHALLENGE to raise money and awareness for relevant charities across the world.
HOW DO YOU GET INVOLVED?
Because we can’t meet in person this year and get to know each other, it would be great if you could share photos of where you are doing your challenge in your local area, showing off landmarks and scenery. Next time we meet it will be fun to look back and enjoy sharing our virtual experiences together.
