Challenge Walk 101 Conference Call Series – A Must for NEW Walkers!
By Bonnie Nevin, Southeast Region Workgroup member
We want to ensure that our first time walkers are as educated and informed as possible on all things Challenge Walk MS: Charleston Challenge 2013! So last year we implemented a conference call series to assist us with that mission. Walkers can call in from the comfort of their own home and listen to our awesome presenters and voice any questions or concerns. It is also a great forum to share fundraising ideas!
If you are a new walker, please plan on listening in. If you have walked before, these calls will be a great refresher. The conference call series will provide you will the tools you need for success with training, fundraising and how to plan for the event itself.
