Challenging but Creative Campaign to work on.
Pros: meeting new people, and educating students on campus
Cons: raising money in a struggling economy
I was the first student to establish and maintain a connection between the Alz. Association;Greater New Jersey Chapter and the Monmouth University campus. I wanted to educate students about the disease, and help raise awareness about the importance of raising money to help find a cure for Alzheimer's. I also created and leaded a team to participate, on behalf of MU, in the Walk to End Alz in Point Pleasant, N.J. I learned creative new strategies to educate students about the disease, and used my creativity and determination to raise money in hard economic times. The hardest part of the campaign was continuing to find new ways to raise money for the team, but i enjoyed the challenge. The most enjoyable part of the campaign was the day of the charity walk. I loved meeting the other participants, and hearing their stories and their experiences with ALZ.
