    Vertical Express for Can Do MS

    I have a wonderful core group around me. My wife, kids, brothers and personal care attendants. I learned at the CAN DO Program that support partners also need their own moments in life. I appreciate all that they do.

    Adaptive Skiing Experiences

    Vertical Express for Can Do MS is not only a day of fundraising activities, it is also an opportunity for supporters to see firsthand where their dollars are going. Can Do MS partners with New England Disabled Sports, Achieve Tahoe, and Vail Resorts, to allow people with MS to learn how to ski with adaptive instructors and equipment, at no cost. Through our adaptive ski experiences, we encourage self-esteem and confidence, improve fitness levels, and create an environment for building friendships, both on and off the slopes. Can Do MS believes the skills learned through our Adaptive Ski Programs will transcend the weekend and become lifelong tools for all participants!
