Fundraising and team-spirit contests

Written by on June 19, 2010 at 11:35 am

Raising $1,500 is a challenge for all walkers. The NMSS's goal is to support and encourage your fundraising efforts every step of the way. With that in mind, we are offering two special fundraising incentives for walkers and teams at the Challenge Walk.

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! The walker with the highest number of donors as of August 15th will "feel the love" and receive special recognition along the walk route and lunch stop each day and during the evening programs.

Another important part of the MS Challenge Walk is teams, which help their members strive for even greater heights. The team with the highest per-walker fundraising average as of August 15th will also be given special recognition along the walk route each day and during the evening programs. In addition, they will receive premium transportation on Sunday from the Wixon School Prefinish BBQ to the Hyannis Transportation Center before the finish line walk and closing ceremony.

Keep up the good work fundraising and recruiting others to join the movement at the MS Challenge Walk. We need your help in continuing to grow this wonderful event. Don't forget to utilize the new and exciting MS Challenge Walk videos on YouTube as a fundraising and recruitment tool.

If you would like to discuss your fundraising campaign and brainstorm new fundraising strategies, please contact us at mschallenge@nmss.org or 800-344-4867 option 2. You can also sign up to receive regular email updates , including a weekly fundraising idea.

Wanted: One national anthem singer

Written by on July 13, 2009 at 11:45 am

The MS Challenge Walk begins and ends with ceremonies, and we want you to be a part of it. As you arrive on the Hyannis Village Green the morning of Friday, September 11th, there will be various warm-ups, stretches, and exercises to help get ready for your first 20 miles. But before we go, we'll pay our respects to the American flag.

We are looking for a walker or crew member to sing the national anthem at the Hyannis Village Green that Friday morning at 8 AM.  If you or someone you know is a vocalist who wants to contribute to a great start to the MS Challenge Walk, please email mschallenge@mam.nmss.org, or call 800-344-4867 option 2.
