Fundraising Week


Walk MS is about more than walking - it is about raising funds to support international research projects, national awareness and advocacy efforts, and local programs and services. Every dollar raised through Walk MS helps move us closer to a world free of multiple sclerosis.


March 26-30 is National Fundraising Week!
During this week, you raise funds and
we'll reward you with great prizes.

Your Challenge
We're offering you 3 challenges and 7 chances to win!

  • Challenge #1: Raise $35 during National Fundraising Week and you'll be entered into a daily drawing for a $5 Starbucks gift card.
    • The day you raise $35, you'll be entered into the drawing for that day, and all following days. Raise funds on Monday and you'll be entered into the raffle  every day of National Fundraising Week!
    • Did you know, a donation of $35 could provide a book for our resource library, which is available for people living with MS in our community?
  • Challenge #2: Raise $200 by Friday, March 30 at 11:59 p.m. and be entered into a raffle for a $50 gift card to Crate & Barrel.
    • This week and every week, approximately 200 people will be diagnosed with MS.
    • Raise $1 for each person by the end of National Fundraising Week (we're including your total before this week through 11:59 p.m. on Friday, March 30).
  • Team Challenge: Teams who have raised $1,000 or more by the end of National Fundraising Week will be entered into a raffle for a $100 gift card from Clyde's restaurant.
    • One month of peer counseling support for 300 people living with MS could be funded with a $1,000 donation.
    • If each of the 450 currently registered teams each raised $1,000 we could help provide peer counseling for more than 11,000 people for a full year.  

The fine print:

  • Funds raised during this time benefit all of the National MS Society's efforts to move us closer to a world free of MS. The programs and services listed are examples of how funds raised will be used.
  • National Fundraising Week starts at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, March 26 and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, March 30.
    • For Challenge 1, funds have to be raised during National Fundraising Week
    • For Challenge 2 and the Team Challenge, funds raised before and during National Fundraising Week count towards the total.
  • National Fundraising Week emails will be sent on Monday, March 26 and Thursday, March 29. Daily winners from Challenge #1 will be posted on our Chapter Facebook page (www.facebook.com/nmssdc). Final winners will be posted on the Walk MS homepage (www.MSandYOU.org/walk) on Monday, April 2.
