Join us this summer and

Experience an ALL NEW #MS4MS!

Our do-it-your-way approach to spreading awareness and raising funds for the Rocky Mountain MS Center is making some big changes in 2023. As always, supporters can tackle their own summit — any challenge they choose — and spread the word to their own networks to raise support.

New this year: our LIVE AND IN-PERSON

“Flat 14er”

On the morning of June 10th we’ll be bringing supporters together at Clear Creek Valley Park in Denver, to tackle one of Colorado’s famous 14ers turned on its side! That’s a 14,000-foot course that you can walk, jog, run, stroll, or ride — all on an accessible, paved course that’s open to just about anyone.

MS4MS is all about setting your own goal, and conquering your own Summit! In recent years, MS4MS supporters and teams have walked for distance, jogged in teams, swam laps, and set daily workout goals for themselves — and done it all while supporting the Rocky Mountain MS Center.

Pick the option that’s right for you:

All #MS4MS participants will get access to their very own fundraising website where they can get friends and family to join them in support of #MS4MS. Want to do both? No problem! Register for the Flat 14er and you can use your fundraising site to manage your Do-It-Yourself campaign all summer long.

Join the #MS4MS Flat 14er!

Back in 2010, several enterprising volunteers put their love of hiking Colorado’s famous 14,000-foot peaks and their desire to support the Rocky Mountain MS Center together, kicking off the first #MS4MS. The uniquely Colorado campaign they created has since grown to hundreds of hikers every year.

When the founders of #MS4MS wanted a way to make their hiking-focused event accessible to everyone in our MS community, they decided to turn one of Colorado’s famous 14,000-foot peaks on its side, and the “Flat 14er” was born!

We’ve kicked off #MS4MS with a small Flat 14er event for the Rocky Mountain MS Center’s KADEP clients most years since. But in 2023, we’re inviting the entire community to take part!

Join us on Saturday morning, June 10, for our first community-wide Flat 14er!

Flat 14er Details:

WHEN: Saturday, June 10 (in the morning — exact start time TBA)

WHERE: Clear Creek Valley Park, 3700 W. 58th Place, Arvada, CO (easily accessible just north of I-70, between Sheridan and Federal Boulevards)
