Society president is walking & talking

Written by on Aug 6, 2015

National Multiple Sclerosis Society President and CEO Cindy Zagieboylo will be participating in Challenge Walk MS Cape Cod this September. She shares her thoughts about what it means to her and also a training selfie:

I'm excited about the upcoming Challenge Walk MS on Cape Cod! The Challenge Walk MS is a wonderful metaphor for what it takes to be resilient: Setting goals (50 miles and raising funds), engaging others (some join your team and some support with financial contributions), receiving support (encouragement on the route, rest stops), and providing support (encouraging others makes us stronger). Much of what I have learned about resiliency has been from connecting with people affected by multiple sclerosis.

I plan to make new connections during the Challenge Walk MS and deepen the connections I already have. My team is called "50 Miles – All Smiles". Let's walk together!

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.


  • 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!
