Thousands of people will get wet this Sunday for multiple sclerosis



Thousands of people will be thrown to the water this Sunday and will be drenched in pools and beaches in solidarity with the patients of multiple sclerosis, a chronic pathology of the central nervous system that has no cure and that suffer in Spain more than 55,000 citizens.

As usual every second Sunday of July, patients with multiple sclerosis will invite citizens to take a "solidary" bath in the framework of the campaign that for 26 years now they have celebrated in more than 900 beaches and swimming pools.

The "Get Wet for Multiple Sclerosis" initiative, promoted by Multiple Sclerosis Spain along with 27 associations and foundations, aims to multiply the visibility towards this disease.

Multiple sclerosis is one of the most common neurological diseases among the population of 20 to 30 years old and can produce symptoms such as fatigue, mobility problems, lack of balance, pain, visual and cognitive alterations, speech difficulties and tremors.
