An Impact 37 Years in the Making
In 1985, 10 Olympians rallied in Alyeska, Alaska, skiing 1 million vertical feet in 24 hours. Their cause was Jimmie Heuga, diagnosed with MS just six years after winning the Bronze Medal in Slalom at the Winter Olympics in Innsbruck, Austria, in 1964.
Together, these athletes raised the seed money Jimmie needed to start his own nonprofit: Can Do Multiple Sclerosis. Through Can Do MS, Jimmie pioneered a new standard of MS care that transformed the lives of families living with MS.
Thirty-seven years and thousands of friends later, SKI for MS has become an epic mountain event where skiers and boarders shred the slopes, sending families living with MS to the life-changing programs only Can Do MS provides.
100% of SKI for MS proceeds directly supports families living with MS through Can Do MS, a national nonprofit. Can Do MS delivers health and wellness education programs to help people with MS use exercise, nutrition, and motivation to manage their symptoms and find their own way to thrive. All of Can Do MS programs are delivered with zero cost to participants and their families.
