Get out and get training this Memorial Day weekend!

Dear Challenge Walkers,

Can you believe it? Memorial Day Weekend is upon us! And really, I am so happy it is. I know we have all had a tough winter, so let's celebrate this great weather by getting out and about by walking in this nice weather!

Make sure your check out the training schedule in our guide if you have not done so yet. Share your training experience with your friends and family too! They may join you on a walk, donate to your hard work and efforts, or even sign up for Challenge Walk MS with you!

How is your training going? Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns. I would love to hear your story on why you walk.

Have you heard the news? We have a new BONUS BUCKS incentive for new 2014 Challenge Walkers! This is a special offer from our Challenge Walk MS Steering Committee to help with this year's recruitment.

Use "ETC50" as a registration code to take $50 off their registration fee and to enroll in this special offer.
