    The CAN DO Program staff weren’t talking about the things that I was no longer able to do. They were emphasizing what I still could do. It was so uplifting.

    Run for a Reason With Can Do MS at the Kaiser Permanente Colfax Marathon

    Posted Wednesday, February 1, 2012

    Edwards, Colo. – Can Do Multiple Sclerosis will participate as an official Charity Partner with the Colfax Marathon, on May 19-20, 2012 in Denver, Colo.

    The Colfax Marathon is a non-profit event, with the goal of being the flagship nonprofit fundraising platform in the U.S. In 2011, over 1,700 runners raised money and awareness for 73 charity partners. Can Do MS is excited to be an official Charity Partner once again in 2012, to help raise money for our programs offered to those living with MS.

    Whether you choose to run the Marathon, Half Marathon, or put together a Marathon team-relay, 100% of the money you or your team raises will go directly to Can Do MS, and the development of our lifestyle empowerment programs. Please visit www.coloradocolfaxmarathon.org to register online or learn more about the event. Be sure to select Can Do MS as the charity for which you will fundraise.

    Not a runner? Not a problem! Can Do MS staff members have already registered to pound the pavement in May, so you can show your support by donating to a Can Do MS team member. Feel free to pass on the event information to a runner you know and help them with their Can Do MS fundraising efforts.
