My possible walk for Myelin repaire Foundation

Postby sh8un » Wed Feb 28, 2007 7:45 pm

Hi
Lately I have been feeling like I need to do something in order to make it faster for these researchers to get the money they need to start pumping out the drugs. I wanted to organize a sponsored walk for the myelin Repair foundation. I have actually never done anything like that and don't really know where to start. I did email them a few days ago but have not received a reply. Tried calling them but I am told that the number is not available from my area. If this thing goes through and I am able to walk to raise money, I just wanted to know what you guys thought about MRF and if there are any other organizations that you are aware of that are worthy. I somehow don't really want to walk for the MSS. I am not sure why that is. Maybe because i really like the MRF's promise better. Let me know what you think and please give me advise.
Thank you all,
NN

hi sh8un,

i don't know a lot about the MRF, but i thought i would pass something on to you. about a year and a half ago, i attended the National Multiple Sclerosis Society's conference in Atl (just happened to be there)...it sounds like you're trying to go a different route then the MSS and i think that is great...i just wanted to let you know that they had informative workshops at the conference, some of which talked about how to do fund raisers...and, they didn't require any sort of commitment to MSS to attend the fundraising workshop...good luck

Hi all,
Just wanted to update. I looked into the MRF but they basically told me that they are more interested in big investors. So,,,I have decided to work with Accelerated Cure Project based on a tip from someone on this website. I would be the first to do a fundraiser for them in Canada, so I am very excited. I am also very scared and I hope that I can actually pull this off. I have never done anything like this ever and it scares the poop out of me. Wish me luck :lol: .
