Challenge Walk on Facebook

Written by on May 13, 2009 at 12:21 pm

Are you on Facebook? We are! The MS Challenge Walk has its own Facebook group that you can join! Over 200 walkers and volunteers have signed up for the group, where they can post pictures of past events, discuss fundraising ideas, and receive invitations to upcoming events, such as the Boston Team Rally.

Facebook is a free social networking site where you can connect with your friends and family, share your hobbies, and meet new people with similar interests. I personally have used it not only to keep in touch with the many friends I've made at past walks, but also to find training buddies in my geographic area. Walking and riding is always more fun when you have someone to share it with and to egg you on. So whether you're looking for friends online or off, consider finding them on Facebook!

Ken joined the MS Challenge Walk in 2005, more than a decade after his mother was diagnosed. After walking for three years and 150 miles, he switched to the support crew and now rides his bicycle along the trail, providing whatever encouragement (and snacks!) he can to the 600 walkers. He is also an alumnus of the event's steering committee and is this site's webmaster.
