Team captain update & registration discount

Written by on Jan 10, 2011

Greetings, MS Challenge Walk Team Captains —

It is truly amazing that this year will be the 10th Annual MS Challenge Walk! Because of you, we have raised over $11.5 million towards a cure. Although we will be celebrating this incredible achievement at the MS Challenge Walk on September 9–11, 2011, our friends and family still need us to once again join forces and continue the movement towards a world free of MS.

I am constantly moved by your commitment to our cause and honored by the the new friends made during my involvement as a participant in the annual MS Challenge Walk. As leaders, the future growth of this event begins with us.

As ambassadors for the Walk, recruiting new teams and team members remains critical in moving forward. Advancing the network through recruitment and coaching our team members is equally important as raising the money that you all do individually. More walkers mean more revenue for our cause and we can never afford to lose momentum. To help our teams recruit, our chapter would like to offer a special discount code for team captains to pass along to team members. This discount code will entitle the team member to $25 off the $75 registration fee when registering for the MS Challenge Walk on our Web site.

Please use and share this discount code: TEAM25

Your success is our team success and our success helps the individuals and families living with MS in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont. Just this year, there have been three new medications approved for the treatment of multiple sclerosis by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, including the first oral disease modifying MS therapy.

I want to personally thank you for your past participation in the MS Challenge Walk and affording me the opportunity to participate — my family remains grateful. With each step you and your team members take and each dollar you raise, you truly propel promising research that will ultimately lead to a world free of MS.

Feel free to contact Kara Kelley or me via email or at 978-314-2338 for any information or assistance that you need to help in growing your team.
