Event calendar publicity

Written by on November 13, 2009 at 9:36 am

The MS Challenge Blog's event calendar is now more visible than ever — all the better to promote your fundraisers!

The MS Challenge Blog has always had an event calendar to which any member of our community can submit a fundraising event that benefits the MS Challenge Walk. Previously, events were listed separately from these blog posts.

Based on user feedback, we are now complementing that separate listing by incorporating events into the main index. That means you'll see events posted here as soon as they are approved for publication, be it days, weeks, or months in advance. Yesterday's "All Smiles for 21+ Dance" listing was the first such event to be posted in this fashion — and it's timely, too, as the dance in question is this very weekend. (Note that the date of the event is given in the red box, not in the byline for the actual post!)

The sooner you submit your event, the sooner it'll be put in front of hundreds of potential supporters!

As always, please contact us if you have any questions about this or any other feature of the Challenge Blog.

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.
