WHAT: MS Skate-A-Thon to benefit Can Do Multiple Sclerosis
WHEN: Sunday, March 27, 2011 3:00 – 5:00pm
WHERE: Dobson Ice Arena, Vail, Colorado
WHY: A national nonprofit organization, Can Do MS is an innovative provider of lifestyle empowerment programs for people with MS and their support partners. The organization empowers people to move beyond their condition by giving them the knowledge, skills, tools and confidence to adopt healthy lifestyle behaviors, actively co-manage their MS and live their best lives possible.
Can Do MS’s unique philosophy, approach and learning model helps people with MS and their support partners maximize their life by realizing they are more than their MS. The organization is a unique educator that uses health, wellness and lifestyle principles to empower people to transform their lives.
Can Do MS relies on grants, fund raising events, and donations to bring its lifestyle empowerment programs to people living with MS.
All funds raised through the MS Skate-A-Thon will be specifically used to provide scholarships to help others attend the CAN DO Program who might not otherwise be able to attend.
HOW: Ask family, friends, companies, teachers, neighbors, and anyone else you can think of to pledge or sponsor you for the Skate-A-Thon.
People can pledge per lap skated or a flat amount. If they pledge per lap, you will need to keep count of the total number of laps skated in the 2 hours and multiply that by the amount pledged per lap. You will then collect the funds after the Skate-A-Thon. Example: 75 laps x 1.00 per lap = $75.00
* Please note that all other pledge monies should be collected before the Skate-A-Thon.
On the day of the Skate-A-Thon be ready to skate and bring the following items with you.
a) Completed pledge form(s) if you used one for donations not made on-line
b) All monies (checks made payable to Can Do Multiple Sclerosis)
c) Skates (rental skates will be available if needed)
Going to be out of town for the Skate-A-Thon? No problem, you can still participate by collecting pledges and mailing them in before you leave or have all donations made on-line.
