It's Fun in Fundraising Week!

Written by on July 31, 2012 at 8:22 am

We know MS Challenge Walkers (and some crew) fundraise year round.

Since the MS Challenge Walk is fast approaching, we'd like to offer some incentives for you to boost your fundraising this week.

There are 3 chances to win!

  • If you raise at least $250 online during fundraising week you will be entered to win a $25 a restaurant gift card.
  • If you make a self-donation of $10 or more during fundraising week will be entered to win a $10 Dunkin Donuts gift card.
  • Our grand prize winner who raises the most during fundraising week will receive a $100 American Express gift card.

Raising $1,500 can be a challenge for walkers, but we know that you are not deterred! You know that the MS Challenge Walk pushes you to exceed what you think are your limits, physically and philanthropically.

Our goal is to support and encourage your fundraising efforts every step of the way. One of the keys to successful fundraising for the MS Challenge Walk is to ask absolutely everyone for support.  The more donors you solicit, the more donations you get!

Did you know that walkers who make self-pledges and ask friends for donations typically raise up to six times more money than those who only do one or the other?

Want to learn how others fundraise and see what events are coming up? Check out our MS Challenge Blog to get fundraising ideas, and browse the events calendar.

I look forward to seeing everyone on Cape Cod in a little over a month.

All the best,
