So, we heard about what the National MS Society does and how they can help find a cure by hosting a walk to raise awareness and raise money to help find a cure. So, we work along side with them for a whole year and coordinated an MS Walk in my community (which I live in) and raise money towards the National MS Society to help find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis. I found a group of teenagers who were willing to work with me to help make the MS Walk happen. As a group I put them in charge of difference areas that can help coordinate the MS Walk. The committees were food & drinks, tables and chairs, sponsors, equipments, promotions, and refreshments. I put myself in the logistics head person to over look, direct, and help each committee fulfill their tasks. Every week I held meetings after school for my committees to gather up and discuss with a representative from the National MS Society about what is done and what needs to be done in regards to our walk. We asked radio stations to promote our MS Walk, we went door to door to hand out flyers and information regarding the MS Walk which we are hosting and we posted flyers at local stores. I found local clubs and school teachers and encouraged them to form a team to help raise money for the cause and also to participate in the walk. Every beginning of the month we set goals and achieved them by the end of the month. During the year I helped to find sponsors who would lend us chairs, tables, and canopies to provide lunch, rest stops during the walk, and also for our registration tables to register walk teams. I helped to find sponsors who will donate us breakfast, lunch, snacks, and refreshments to provide for the participants who donated money towards the National MS Society. When we finally found all the sponsors we needed and accumulated all equipments and items needed to make the MS Walk happen we finally planned out the walk and it was a 5 and a half mile walk. This walk finally happened in May of 2008 at the Merced Applegate Park! Early in the morning I went to the walk site to set up the whole walk, setting up chairs, tables, canopies for rest stops, snacks and breakfast. When everything was settled, I waited for walk teams to arrive and get them registered. When everyone was registered and ready to walk the five and a half mile walk, we started the event by cutting a red ribbon at the starting line. While the participants walked, I prepared the medals for walkers who finished and congratulated them and thanked them for their help and participation. I also prepared a wall paper we called "Wall of Hope" and asked participants to sign their name on the wall paper to let them know that they have helped to make a difference. By the end of the day, over $30,000 was raised!!! Ofcourse 100% of the money raised was donated all directly and immediately to the National MS Society in great high hopes of finding a cure for this horrible disease.
