May 2014

The sun is shining here in Colorado, and it's already beginning to feel like summer! We are very excited to kick off our summer and fall Third-Party Events.

Can Do MS is fortunate for the great generosity and support of people and organizations throughout the country. We are grateful to those supporters who spend their own time, money and effort organizing a fundraiser to benefit our programs. These fundraisers vary in type and size, but they include wine-tasting, cycling, golf events and more.

Check out our 2014 Third-Party Events.

Get Involved! Whether you're taking part in your very first 5K, hosting a BBQ, or just doing something you can do, remember to contact us for support with fundraising materials. Learn more about creating your own event to benefit Can Do MS.
