Welcome to Walk MS: Newburyport 2016! We are excited to have you join us for this amazing event. Walk MS: Newburyport 2016 helps us team up with friends, loved ones and co-workers to change the world for everyone affected by MS. Together, we become a powerful force. And with every step we take, every dollar we raise…we’re that much closer. Together, we will end MS forever.
We are proud that Walk MS Greater New England raises over $2.5 million every year, and thank you for being a part of that achievement! Your fundraising supports programs and services that help people affected by MS live their best lives.
Minimum Fundraising Amount: $25
The primary goal of Walk MS is to raise funds to help people who have MS, and their families, through MS education, support, advocacy, services, and research. All walkers 12 years of age and older are asked to raise a minimum of $25.
Forming a team is a great way to fundraise. Teams provide inspiration and competition for other participants, it’s contagious; it puts the “fun” in fundraising, plus the more the merrier! Join a team or start your own. All you need to do is get 4 or more people together, including one team captain, pick a team name and then register. Being a part of a team makes it easier and more fun to reach a fundraising goal so let’s lace up and walk together to end MS!
Ending multiple sclerosis for good will take all of us. It’s why Walk MS matters so much. And it’s why you matter so much.
