It is time to announce this year's MS Challenge Walk theme — PIRATES! We will have a real, live pirate troupe with us to perform for us and we invite you to join in the festivities! Bring any pirate's booty or apparel that you have and help us navigate the treasure map throughout the Challenge Walk weekend!

Training Walk — THIS Saturday, July 27th in Brockton

Gather with your fellow Challenge Walk peers to train together! Click here for more information and to RSVP.

Important Form — Housing Survey

The online housing form is now available. Everyone attending the MS Challenge Walk must complete this form, regardless of where you are staying during the event weekend.

We will do everything we can to accommodate your needs, but priority will be given to those who return their forms first. Deadline to complete the form is August 1, 2013.

Fundraising

Walkers and Super Crew, how is your fundraising going? Raising $1,500 is a challenge for all walkers. Our goal is to support and encourage your fundraising efforts every step of the way. Crew members achieve "Super Crew" status by raising at least $200 for the MS Challenge Walk.

Our MS Challenge Blog offers many tips on fundraising.

MS Challenge Talk

Have you been listening to MS Challenge Talk?

The Challenge Blog has always been letting the MS community read stories and advice from veterans of the MS Challenge Walk. Now, you're able to hear from these pros directly, in a series of audio interviews. Called MS Challenge Talk, these recordings profile walkers who have accepted the challenge to walk 3 days and 50 miles. Each week, you'll hear from a different walker or volunteer about their connection to the cause, the training and fundraising tricks they've learned, and the memories they've made along the way.

These interviews are completely free and can be listened to anytime you want on the MS Challenge Blog. Every Monday until the walk a new episode will be posted.

Thank you to all the walkers and crew who have been interviewed as a part of our MS Challenge Talk series.

All the best,
