News coverage in the Fitchburg Pride

Written by on June 17, 2009 at 4:54 pm

When I encouraged you to tell your story, I promised updates with success stories. Here's our first!

Barbara Carter of the Mamas and Papas got some great coverage in her hometown's newspaper, The Fitchburg Pride. The story is titled "Strides for a cure: Local team fundraises for MS Walk" and covers the social, physical, and financial aspects of the MS Challenge Walk. It's a great piece that brings attention to the cause, the event, and Barbara's team. That's the best kind of publicity — and it's free!

To get your own story out to the media, fill out the NMSS's online form, and their public relations firm will take care of the rest.

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.
