Ken Gagne and MaryAnn Rollings

Welcome 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 Jenny McKenzie, captain of Team Hot Pack. This team of physical therapists made a colorful debut at MS Challenge Walk 2011, vibrantly strolling across the Cape with their hot pink sweat socks and shirts that screamed, "FEEL THE BURN!" Now in their second year, the Hot Pack will again be making the trek from upstate New York to participate in MS Challenge Walk. Listen to where they find their sense of community while residing outside the scope of the NMSS's Greater New England Chapter, and learn about their … unorthodox fundraising events.
