    Vertical Express for Can Do MS

    I just wanted to thank you for letting me know about and getting me to the CAN DO program. My husband and I had a great time. We learned so many things and enjoyed the activities, meeting the people and chatting with experts. I will never forget it and hope to get to it again some day. I enjoyed a nice day recently with a bike ride (with training wheels).

    Vertical Express for Can Do MS

    Vertical Express is the only national event series that combines skiing and fundraising to empower people with MS. Located at the nation’s top ski resorts, Vertical Express features on-mountain and après skiing activities for people of all ages and ability levels. Funds raised at these events support lifestyle empowerment programs for people with MS and their support partners.


    WE DID IT!

    For 31 years, Vertical Express has grounded us in our roots and helped change the lives of people with MS – this year was no different.

    Thanks to the support we received from our seven host mountains and local communities, along with the tremendous backing from participants, volunteers, and donors, we raised $238,377 for our lifestyle empowerment programs!

    Here’s a big shout out to our top overall fundraiser, Louis Jemison, from the Squaw Valley Vertical Express. Louis raised over $16,000, winning him a trip to Vail, CO, during the 2016/2017 ski season!
