Walking 50 miles in three days and raising at least $1,500 is worth some attention! The newspaper in your town wants to know what local residents are up to, and your participation in MS Challenge Walk is a great story!
On this page are links to tools that can help you gain your 15 minutes of fame, or at least a few column inches of ink in the local paper!

This first document includes a sample press release and a sample letter to the editor that you can personalize and send to your local newspaper. Be sure to include a photo of yourself from a past Challenge Walk, or if you're a first year walker, have a friend snap a photo of you on a training walk!
This second document is an email template to reach out to college radio station program directors, but can also be modified for any local radio station.
