Share a selfie for MS Awareness

Written by on March 4, 2014 at 10:48 am

During MS Awareness Week, March 3–9, let's band together and wear our National MS Society apparel for social media solidarity!

Snap a "selfie" showing your orange — maybe it's a Walk MS t-shirt, or a Bike MS jersey, or even an orange bracelet or bandana – and share your pictures on the National MS Society, Greater New England Chapter's Facebook/Twitter accounts.

Details:

  • Check out the MS New England homepage and join our social media sites (Facebook and/or Twitter).
  • Snap a "selfie" wearing your National MS Society apparel and orange! If you happen to meet up with or a team member, take a photo of the two of you or with your entire group! You can make the photo as creative as you like!
  • Post the picture to your social media sites and spread the awareness of multiple sclerosis.
    • Facebook — post the picture on National MS Society Greater, New England Chapter's Facebook page and use #wearMSswag. Tag the location of any events you participate in too like MS Challenge Walk Cape Cod!
    • Twitter – tweet @MS_GreaterNewEngland and use #wearMSswag.

Please share this initiative with your team members, family, and friends. Let's see how many posts we can get to spread the awareness of multiple sclerosis next week!

Looking forward to seeing all of your faces next week!

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!

The Challenge Walk in pictures

The MS Challenge Walk 2010 is only a few days behind us, and memories of the event are still fresh in our minds. Stories like Brian's about his inspiring wife are just one of the many gifts we take with us when we step off the Cape Cod Rail Trail. Sharing these experiences helps to capture a bit of what makes this weekend so special, not only letting us reminiscence about this unique event but also giving us something we can send to our friends and family as a glimpse into our community.

In addition to stories, the weekend was also preserved on film. Just as he did last year, professional photographer and Challenge Walk volunteer Andrew Child has uploaded to his Facebook page 546 photos that he took over the course of the weekend, as well as 107 photos by budding photographer Zach Child. We'll have even more photos as well as videos up soon, but in the meantime, please click on any one of the below pictures to visit the larger album. (You don't need a free Facebook account to view the pictures, but commenting and tagging is limited to members.)

Ken joined the MS Challenge Walk in 2005, more than a decade after his mother was diagnosed. After walking for three years and 150 miles, he switched to the support crew and now rides his bicycle along the trail, providing whatever encouragement (and snacks!) he can to the 600 walkers. He is also an alumnus of the event's steering committee and is this site's webmaster.

Pictures, pictures, everywhere

Just a brief note to let you know that, in addition to the photos from Facebook members and Andrew Child's photography, pictures taken by National MS Society staff over the course of the MS Challenge Walk weekend are now available! If you remember what day your picture was taken or who took it, then you'll be able to find it among the hundreds in a jiff — so head on over and take a gander.

A thousand words times a thousand

Still reminiscing about the MS Challenge Walk? As previously suggested, you can view photos on Facebook and upload your own, but both require already having a free Facebook account. If you're not a member of that social networking site, your options are limited.

Fortunately, professional photographer Andrew Child — who was honored in the MS Challenge Walk's Friday night program, created this site's banner, and just happens to have a birthday today — has made hundreds of pictures available online. With his permission, I offer these links to albums, divided by the days of the event:
