Help create awareness about MS Challenge Walk!

Written by on May 2, 2013 at 3:20 pm

Mother Nature is finally smiling down on us and giving us great weather for walking! Can you believe that in a few months you will be walking 50 miles to create awareness about multiple sclerosis? The awareness that the Challenge Walk builds helps raise funds that fuel local programs and services as well as fund critical research aimed at stopping MS, restoring function lost to MS, and to ending MS forever.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Help us get the word out about the Cape Cod Challenge Walk coming up on September 7–8. Reach out to your local newspapers, television (community stations) and radio stations and ask them to tell your story. By sharing why you walk, why you have a team and why this is so important… you could inspire someone to join your team while others may want to make a donation to your team.

We are available to assist you with information about the National MS Society Greater New England Chapter, multiple sclerosis, Challenge Walk and more.

Thank you for all you do to support our vision of a world free of MS. MS kills connections… but it is through our connections with each other that we WILL kill MS.

Thank you for your help!

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!

Is everyone ready for the MS Challenge Walk 2011? In just over 24 hours, we'll be meeting at the Cape Codder to see old friends and psych up for the next fifty miles!

Just in time for the walk, steering committee chairman Jack Enright appeared this morning on Boston's Fox News to promote the event. The full clip can be seen online:

Jack did a great job plugging our walk, with footage of many familiar friends complementing the news, taken from Andrew Child's photos and various commercials. Be sure to be on the Cape this weekend for your chance to be seen and make a difference!
