EVENT MATERIALS

Information Every Walker Needs!!!

Looking for yet another way to allocate even more money to MS research and programs? Well, you are already half way there!

Every year, we send out thousands of walker information packets. These packets are sent to each person who registers for the walk, and includes directions to each walk site, pledge sheets, information on forming a team and more. As you can imagine, sending out these packets can be not only time consuming but also costly.

Many of the materials we send out are available as downloadable files on our website - which means you can print out your walker info packet yourself! Opting to print out your own materials may seem like a small task to you, but it means a great deal to us!

Available online information:
