Example Mission

Will Marks wanted to support the MS Society.  His Mother suffers from multiple sclerosis.  Will had volunteered and he had raised money by running in fun runs but he wanted to do more.

Will had an idea, he wanted to start his own fun run for the MS Society, but he faced lots of competition for fun runs.  So like any great entrepreneur, Will had to innovate and differentiate.

Will decided to schedule his run on a Wednesday evening after work.  They called it the “DuskBuster”.  It has been a great success for ten years delivering $500,000 to the MS Society.  Please read about it in his blog.

We are proud to have Will serve on the SErtified Alumni Committee helping to approve and validate Mission plans and allocate donations to the SErtified Fund.
