Annual Don Shipley Memorial Go Kart Race
In Arizona, Josh and Bob host an annual Go Kart race that includes an evening of racing to benefit the Society. In addition to acquiring sponsors and vendors for the event, Bob and Josh work with a team to raise funds through entry fees and general event donations. Together with the support of their community and racers across the US, the 2020 event ended up raising just over $15,000!
Sk8 the State
Sk8 the State’s mission is to raise awareness and funding for multiple sclerosis research, treatments and support by taking great strides on roller skates. They pledge to push themselves up to and beyond expectations, skating across a new state each year, in an effort to bring more public attention to this debilitating disease.
In 2017, Jerome sailed solo around the world in 271 days. After his dear friend was diagnosed with MS, he planned another solo voyage in 2020 to transit the Northwest Passage and circle the Americas. “When I think of the challenges that I went through alone in the oceans of the world, they are nothing compared to what my friend is facing every day.” Jerome raised $6,063 for the National MS Society.
