THE STORY:

I'm proud to be a part of the Aspen TNT 10K this year, a race that showcases a unique route on various trails, bike paths, and sidewalks around the town of Aspen, Colorado. The Aspen TNT donates 100% of the net proceeds to the Colorado-Wyoming Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. MS is a chronic disease of the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. MS can cause blurred vision, loss of balance, poor coordination, slurred speech, tremors, numbness, extreme fatigue, problems with memory and concentration, paralysis, blindness and more. MS is the leading cause of disability in young women and the second leading cause of disability in young men. I was diagnosed last Thanksgiving with MS and have made certain lifestyle an diet modifictations to keep the disease at bay. At first it was extremely hard to manage, and I'm still slowly learning how to integrate the disease management into my daily life. I believe wholeheartedly that through continued research a cure for MS will be found in my lifetime....and this is my hope, that future generations will not be affected by MS. There have been several recent breakthroughs in research that have given the MS community hope for this cure. The key to this is ongoing research. Over the past two years, the Aspen TNT has donated over $100,000 for research to the Colorado-Wyoming Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. With your help, we will to be able to continue our support of the efforts of the National MS Society. The National MS Society is the largest private funder of MS research in the world.
