If you know someone who has multiple sclerosis, you know how devastating it can be. It attacks the central nervous system and can be disabling. Even if you don’t know anyone who suffers from it, you can agree that it’s time to end it forever. You can do your part to find a cure by participating in the Walk to End MS Forever. The walk will be on April 28, and it will start and end at North Boulevard Town Square. The fully accessible route has multiple distances, so you can walk as little or as much as you want.
Registration for the walk is free, but you’re encouraged to raise funds for the event. Remember, the organizers want to end MS forever, and raising money is the only way that can happen. With the help of your donations and fundraising efforts, researchers can fight to find a cure and finally put an end to this debilitating disease. Let’s go over some fundraising tips so you can do your part in the effort to end MS.
Set Up a Team
Fundraising is always easier when you have a group. Gather some friends and register as a group so you can all fundraise together. Then, have a little fun with it. A little healthy competition goes a long way in reaching fundraising goals. See who can get the most money in the shortest period of time.
Educate Yourself and Others
Most people won’t give unless they know why they’re giving. While many people understand the devastating impact of MS, others do not. Educate yourself about MS so you can spread the word to others. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society has tons of resources you can use to get educated. Then, you can educate others when asking them to donate.

Set Up a Fundraising Page
When you sign up to raise money for the walk, you can set up your own web page. Use it to tell your story and to ask people for money. Then, send a link to the page out to your personal network. Be sure to give your own donation so others will see you are also contributing to the fundraising effort. That will get the ball rolling and make others more likely to donate.
