Can Do MS will participate as an official Charity Partner with Colfax Marathon, taking place May 15, 2011 in Denver, Colo.
The Colfax Marathon is a nonprofit event with the goal of being the flagship nonprofit fundraising platform in the U.S. In 2010, more than 1,060 runners chose to run and raise pledges for a total of 41 charity partners. With Can Do MS signed on as an official Charity Partner in 2011, this is your opportunity to raise money and help people living with multiple sclerosis discover the power to be more than their MS.
Whether you choose to run the Marathon, Half Marathon, or put together a Marathon team-relay, 100 percent of the money you or your team raises will go directly to Can Do MS, and the development of our lifestyle empowerment programs. Visit www.coloradocolfaxmarathon.org for event information and online registration—and be sure to indicate Can Do MS as the charity for which you would like to fundraise.
Not a runner? Not a problem! With staff members from Can Do MS already registered to pound the pavement in mid May, you can support a Can Do MS team member. Or simply pass on the event’s information to your favorite runner(s) and help them with their fundraising efforts.
