The Greater Delaware Valley Chapter signed up 151 new MS activists at three Walk MS sites in New Jersey. Lakshmi Chiabella signed up 67 people alone at the Moorestown Walk MS. She is now interested in becoming a GRC member.
The Chapter sent an email alert to MS activists asking for volunteers to sign up to become Action Alert Walk Volunteers at the different Walk MS sites. The response was wonderful and secured at least two volunteers for each site.
At the events, the NJ Government Relations Committee introduced legislators to individuals with the disease and encouraged them to share their stories to paint a picture for the legislators about living with MS. The GRC wrote personal thank you notes to each legislator who attended.
