Opportunities and Support

There are several opportunities in the Mile High City that anyone can participate in to support or donate to the Rocky Mountain MS Society. All donations stay here in Colorado and support a variety of needs including research and clinical trial.

The Walk MS, Bike MS and Hike Ms are a few of the activities that are available to anyone that wishes to become involved in supporting the society.

My favorite is the MS 150 bike ride held in June. It draws nearly 500,000 riders and 5000 teams every year.

Over the course of 10-11 years, I have had dear friends who have participated in the ride that begins in Westminster to Fort Collins the first day and back to Westminster on the second day, equaling 150 miles. Riders can choose to stay overnight in the CSU college dormitories, or anywhere else they may prefer. 

 This June will be the tenth year that one of my best friends will ride for me. She usually raises $1000 or more. It can be a decent ride or a difficult one depending on weather and the route biked.

We meet the riders at the finish line with cheers and picture/video opportunities.

After the ride we take my friend to the dorms to shower and change and then treat her to dinner and ice cream in Old Town Fort Collins. It is something we look forward to every year.

I can never thank these riders enough for their passion and determination in making a difference for thousands of men and women who suffer from Multiple Sclerosis.
