We asked people living with MS, their carers, loved ones and healthcare professionals, to share any challenges they face on a daily basis because of MS â€“ from getting dressed in the morning to cooking dinner in the evening. And they responded by submitting 103 everyday challenges.
Together with the help of the MS community, we created three challenge briefs, each detailing one of the challenges we received . Fernandoâ€™s bladder control challenge, Giacomoâ€™s walking challenge and Paulaâ€™s temperature challenge. We then reached out to the worldâ€™s brightest brains for ideas to help solve them

From 40 ideas submitted, 3 were chosen for a public vote â€“ Ellisâ€™ idea, Joaoâ€™s idea and Team TEMâ€™s idea. The world then chose a winner, BladdeRunner. A mobile app that has the potential to make a real and lasting difference to the MS community. And, through our commitment, the commitment of our partners and the winners themselves, weâ€™re working tirelessly to make sure it does.
