MS Challenge Walk's new home on Facebook

Written by on April 13, 2010 at 9:37 am

Last year, we announced that the MS Challenge Walk could be found on Facebook. Our thanks to everyone who joined us in that community! We enjoyed using that service to help each other prepare for this annual event and to get to know each other both before and after that amazing weekend.

Today we invite you to join us at our new Facebook home. We're moving from a "group" to a "page", a format change that brings with it many benefits:

  • Updates from the MS Challenge Walk can appear on your homepage in the news feed, making it easier to get the latest updates.
  • Photos from the event are now separated into albums, instead of being heaped them into one disorganized collection.
  • You can find our blog and Twitter feeds all in one place!
  • The page's address is much easier to remember:

Please use the above link or the below box to become a fan of our new page! It's a great way to stay in touch and to meet your fellow walkers, some of who are listed below. A great big thanks to Marisa Bonanno for getting us started on Facebook with the group. It will remain on Facebook but will be closed to new members and activity.

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.
