About the Campaign

Runner Story
Growing up in Colorado, I have always been passionate about the outdoors, and the activities that go hand in hand with living in this beautiful state. I have traveled all over the Rocky Mountains; running, hiking, skiing, and being in the out of doors. I became passionate about running in Graduate School as I studied to be a social worker, and learned about the powerful connection of the mind-body balance. Near this time in my life, my grandmother passed away from complications due to Multiple Sclerosis. I began to learn more about the disease that contributed to my grandmother’s passing, and learned that Colorado has a staggeringly high percentage of people living with MS. As I delved deeper into understanding this disease, I discovered teachers, community members, co-workers, and family friends that lived each day with MS, and became passionate about contributing to a cure for this debilitating and life altering disease. I now run for those who cannot, and I source my strength from the optimism, hope and enthusiasm of those living with MS and their champions
