Kiss Goodbye to MS is a global campaign dedicated to raising funds for research into the prevention, better treatments and cures for MS, as part of the worldwide efforts to improve the lives of people living with multiple sclerosis (MS) – the most commonly acquired neurological disease. The campaign is one about hope, that with enough funding support, researchers around the world will solve the mysteries of MS and not only find the cause, but also the cures. Having a direct link and importance to the founding purpose of Nuzest we have long been a strong supporter of Kiss Goodbye to MS and this year we are excited to announce that Nuzest is now the official nutrition partner of Kiss Goodbye to MS.
As a company we are committed to enacting positive change on a local and global scale by giving back and being active with organisations that are accomplishing great things. Since being founded in 2004 Kiss Goodbye to MS has made significant funding available for MS researchers and world-leading research collaborations. This has led to game-changing breakthroughs in research, directly impacting and changing the face of MS clinical practice here in Australia.
In 2012, Kiss Goodbye to MS began as an awareness campaign to help raise the profile of MS. The response was overwhelming, so the following year Kiss Goodbye to MS evolved into a community fundraising campaign, becoming Australia’s first national campaign dedicated to raising funds for MS research only. Every year a significant percentage of Nuzest’s annual profits are donated to Kiss Goodbye to MS to support them in finding a cure for MS.
Kiss Goodbye to MS is one of the major charities Nuzest partners with each year. Our staff partake in the annual The May 50K event and enter as a team in the City2Surf to help raise funds for MS research; as well as providing support through direct donations, driving fundraising and contributing to their calendar events through volunteering staff, preparing catering, donating products for goodie bags and raffle prizes.
In 2019, the global distribution network of Nuzest got involved in supporting The Great Wall of China expedition through Kiss Goodbye to MS. We ran regional competitions, raising awareness and donations, and sent winners from around the world to partake in this adventurous fundraising initiative.
Globally, Kiss Goodbye to MS has significantly contributed to big picture impacts in MS by dramatically increasing the funding dedicated to MS research in Australia.
Nuzest CEO and Founder, Trevor Bolland, explains the importance of supporting a foundation such as Kiss Goodbye to MS: “I know that any funds we raise for Kiss Goodbye to MS are put straight back into funding world-class research and clinical trials focused on alleviating symptoms and potentially reversing the damage the disease has already caused for those previously diagnosed with MS. Any contribution, big or small, means the team at Kiss Goodbye to MS are one step closer to the cure and that will be a truly remarkable moment.” Nuzest continues to campaign tirelessly to provide vital funding for MS research, as Trevor acknowledges that while knowledge, understanding and treatment options have come a long way, “breakthrough medications became available as a result of funding MS research and we remain hopeful that further research will find a cure.”
In 2020, Monique Bolland, daughter of Trevor and Co-Founder of Nuzest, became an official ambassador for Kiss Goodbye to MS. Through sharing her journey with MS, and inspiring the support of Australia, Monique will help Kiss Goodbye to MS to heighten awareness, accelerate fundraising and achieve the vision of improved prevention, better treatments and towards finding a cure for MS.
