TEAM INFO

Starting a team is a great way to participate in Walk MS with family, friends, coworkers or a community group. Register your team, set a challenging, yet attainable fundraising goal, and join Walk MS 2014 for a fun, rewarding and inspirational walk!

Walk MS teams range in size from four walkers to our largest team of more than 100 walkers. Teams are a wonderful way to bring coworkers closer together, boost company morale and show community involvement. Best of all, it’s more fun to walk with those you care about. Spend a day with friends while making your mark on MS.

SOCIAL MEDIA

Fundraise with Facebook  

Change your profile picture to a photo of the Walk MS or National MS Society logo. It’s a constant reminder to your Facebook friends that you’re participating in Walk MS and raising funds for the Society. Send a newsfeed story using "Get the Word Out" and your friends can click directly on your status update to donate to you. Share your story of why you walk, and read stories of other participants. View your personalized fundraising badge, which includes a thermometer that keeps track of your fundraising progress and provides an easy way to check real time fundraising status.

Get your Facebook fundraising started today! Post a link on Facebook to the fundraising page in your Participant Center and let folks know how your Walk MS fundraising is going. Send a message through Facebook to all of your friends and spread the word about your fundraising. You never know who has a connection to MS. Here's a great how-to guide on raising funds through Facebook.

How to Email Your Facebook Friends

Facebook limits your messages to 20 people at a time. To send a fundraising or recruitment email to a large audience you should export your Facebook friends’ email addresses into your personal email or Participant Center. Yahoo recently released a new feature that does this for you. Once you’re logged into your Yahoo account, click on “contacts”, and then select the option to import your Facebook friends. Yahoo will take you through a step-by-step process. If you don’t have a Yahoo account, you can create one to get your Facebook contacts, and then export those email address to any email server of your choice.
