Boundless fundraising on Facebook

Written by on August 3, 2009 at 10:53 am

As you know, the MS Challenge Walk is on Facebook. Now you can use this social network not just to connect with your fellow walkers, but to fundraise, too!

If you already have a Facebook account, visit your Participant Center and click on the "fundraise with Facebook" button. This will enable you to add a prominent box to your profile that states your current fundraising success as well as your goal. From there, any of your friends, family, and co-workers on Facebook will be able to click the "Join Me" or "Support Me" links to help you reach your goal of a world free from MS! You'll also receive Facebook notifications with fundraising tips, as well as updates on your profile page that keep others informed of your participation and fundraising progress.

Both Facebook and the application are completely free, and the application and its box can be removed at any time, so there is no commitment to using it for your fundraising efforts. Try it out and feel free to contact ChallengeMS@mam.nmss.org if you have any questions.

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.
