Fundraising Tip #16: Keep fundraising!

Written by on August 25, 2010 at 2:47 pm

[Note: Today being the last Wednesday of the month, this will be our last entry in the weekly Fundraising Tips series. We'll continue to publish three times a week on other subjects up until the MS Challenge Walk!]

The MS Challenge Walk is a once-a-year event, but the cause that motivates us to participate is perennial. For many of us, that means the fundraising never stops. Whether your fundraising efforts span the entire year or just the few months leading up to the event, hundreds of walkers have proven time and again that $1,500 is not as insurmountable a goal as it first seems.

The National MS Society can work with those walkers whose fundraising must extend beyond the MS Challenge Walk deadline. Although submission of donations before or at the event is strongly encouraged, if you need a few more donations to make your goal, please do keep fundraising for the 2010 walk after the fact. We won't keep you from walking the route! We appreciate your dedication to the cause, as will your potential donors.

Online donations will be accepted through November 15. If you have any questions, please contact the MS Challenge Walk team.

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.
