I'd like to introduce myself…

Written by on Mar 1, 2013

Hello! It is a pleasure to reach out to you today as your new MS Challenge Walk Manager and contact. I have just started to work at the Greater New England Chapter for the National MS Society and am excited to join the Challenge!

I have just moved to the Boston area from Philadelphia, where I was born and raised. In Philadelphia, for the past three years I was working at a homeless youth shelter called Covenant House, where I was in charge of all of their special events and fundraisers. Before that I interned at the National MS Society in the Greater Delaware Valley Chapter and am very familiar with all the amazing work that the NMSS achieves each year. I've loved Boston for many years and am excited to finally be living in such a great city and greater community!

I am grateful to be back at the National MS Society and I look forward to meeting you all. Please be on the lookout for future blogs from me with updates about the MS Challenge Walk, fundraising and training tips and other Chapter news.

I would love to hear from you about your past experiences with the MS Challenge Walk and if you have any questions for the upcoming one this year! You can e-mail me at aileen.callahan@nmss.org or call me directly at: 781-693-5102.

Let's keep making strides together!

Aileen is the Director of Development for the Greater New England Chapter of the National MS Society responsible for the 2013 Challenge Walk. She has interned with the National MS Society at the Greater Delaware Valley Chapter with Program Events and is looking forward to working closely with the Steering Committee and Challenge Walk Teams to make this year's MS Challenge Walk a memorable one!

Sara BromleyWelcome to MS Challenge Talk, a weekly audio recording that introduces you to the people and stories behind MS Challenge Walk.

This week, host Ken Gagne speaks with Sara Bromley, captain of Sara's Steele. Sara participated in her first MS Challenge Walk in 2011. Despite being an employee of the National MS Society's Connecticut chapter, she tackled the event with the same training and fundraising requirements as any walker. In this interview, hear her speak from the three perspectives of a patient with MS, a walker, and an NMSS employee.
