Walk MS - Dollar by Dollar
On behalf of the 6,100 individuals and their families living with multiple sclerosis in the Central Pennsylvania area, we would like to thank you for joining us in our vision of a world free of MS. Our goal is to raise more than $825,000 at walk MS 2012 and we are confident that with friends like YOU, this goal WILL be reached! Your support enables us to provide programs and fund research for those who live with multiple sclerosis every day of their lives.
As you know things don't always go as planned with MS...or the weather! So whether you braved the rain (thank you - we know you are still drying out) or chose not to (and we completely understand), please know that we need your fundraising NOW more than ever. Like MS, you never know if or when the sunny days will come. And that is why we work so hard - providing support to your family, friends, and coworkers living with MS. The walk may be over but MS remains. Please continue to send your donations directly to our office at the address listed below. Be sure to include a note with your name on it, so we can credit the donations properly.
Double or even triple your donations with matching gifts! Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, go to www.nationalmssociety.org/employermatch to search for your company. If your company matches, you may be able to access the forms directly through the search. Follow the set procedure, and the National MS Society will be happy to assist. Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses as well.
We know that everyone is anxious to know their personal and team fundraising totals and we appreciate your patience as we work diligently to get all of your donations entered. Please know, it could be a few weeks before these totals are available for you.
Please consider taking a few moments to complete the walk MS evaluation. Your feedback on the organization and execution of the walk, through the completion of the evaluation, will help us to make changes for 2013.
The deadline for team and individual rankings and to qualify for prizes is Tuesday, May 22nd. Those who qualify for prizes will receive certificates after the May 22nd deadline, at which time a prize selection can be made. Click here to browse the selection of prizes available. Remember, if you opt to forfeit your prize, therefore directing more money to the mission, you'll become a member of our Extra Milers Club! http://walkpac.nationalmssociety.org/site/R?i=H38sPHmWsOzs-RDRsy5jug
Photos from the event will be uploaded over the next few weeks. Team captains, keep an eye on your mailbox. We will send you a complimentary team photo within the next few weeks! Also, if you took pictures, we'd love to see them! Upload them to the Shutterfly page, to our facebook page or feel free to email them to email@example.com. http://walkpac.nationalmssociety.org/site/R?i=UCqID7aUb7sIftD6QHJXGQ
