Tweeting live from Challenge Walk 2011

Written by on September 8, 2011 at 5:18 pm

As much as walkers and crew love connecting with each other again every September, it can be hard to disconnect from your friends and family back home long enough to walk those fifty miles. Of course, the best solution is to bring them with you as your teammates — but if they don't know what the walk is all about, they can get a taste of the event this weekend.

Veteran walker Jennifer Rebecca Yates will be tweeting throughout the weekend, sharing short messages of her experiences and encounters along the Cape Cod Rail Trail. You can follow her notes on Twitter at @mschallengewalk; on Facebook at MS Challenge Walk Cape Cod; or right here on this blog. Unlike on Twitter and Facebook, the below feed has the benefit of also displaying tweets from walkers and crew Brian Rossi, Lindsay, Jodi Dwyer, and Cassandra Milone. Just refresh this page anytime you want to see the latest twenty tweets!

[The live tweet has concluded! Please see Jen's archive of tweets for the full story.]

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.
