Looking for sponsors for MS Challenge Walk

January 20, 2015

challenge walk logoI am participating in a National MS Society Challenge Walk in March in Savannah, Georgia, and I’m asking my friends, family members and neighbors for donations. I am also asking those of you who read my blog for a donation.

After participating in local MS Walks for more than 15 years and serving multiple times as a local team captain, I have decided to step it up. And when the MS Society calls this a “challenge walk,” it’s not kidding. It’s a three-day, 50-mile endurance experience that tests walkers’ strength and spirit, and makes an extraordinary difference in the lives of 60,000+ people in the Southeast region of the United States.

This first year,  however, I have decided to volunteer as a Super Crew member — instead of walking. I plan work as a Super Crew member all weekend and find out what it will take for me to walk in the 2016 event — that’s my long-term goal! As soon as this Challenge Walk ends, I will start training for next year’s event.

As a Super Crew member, I will assist with a variety of volunteer responsibilities throughout the three-day weekend. These include working at rest stops, serving meals and staffing the registration table. Each Super Crew member pays a $65 registration fee and raises at least $1,500, just like the walkers do. So raising that $1,500 is my short-term goal!

Your donation will help the National MS Society provide programs and services to people diagnosed with MS and to their families, and it will fund important research into the cause, treatments and a cure for MS. To support my efforts in the 2015 Challenge Walk, please go to http://main.nationalmssociety.org/goto/janehenry_2015.

Thanks in advance for your support!
