The inaugural MuckFest MS in Detroit in August of 2013 was a mucktacular success! If you participated this past summer, you have our sincere appreciation for committing to MuckFest MS and supporting the National MS Society.
Unfortunately, we have to share the news that the event will not be held in Detroit in 2014.
Please know that we share your disappointment. However, Muckfest MS requires an extensive logistics plan. Hosting fewer events across the US in 2014 will ensure that the National MS Society is able to adequately allocate our precious resources in a way that is efficient, effective and maximizes the fundraising impact MuckFest MS will make in the MS movement. And we have great faith that MuckFest will return to the D in the future!
Staying involved and making a difference
We hope you will stay connected to the Michigan Chapter and our vibrant community of supporters. The National MS Society depends on people like you to raise awareness about multiple sclerosis and help the thousands of people living with MS in our community.
Our regional MuckFest MS event will be held in Chicago on Saturday August 23, 2014 – we hope you will consider making a short road trip with us to show the Windy City how the Motor City mucks it! Already we have a great group of runners signed up for MuckFest in Chicago and we’d love for you to join us. Click HERE to register!
We are committed to raising money to overcome and solve the challenges of multiple sclerosis and are currently working on a plan that would also allow you to participate in a similar event here in Michigan through our new Race To Finish MS platform which will be released in early December. We promise to keep you apprised of plans in the coming months.
It is our hope that Muckfest MS will be able to return to Detroit in future years. Of course we will continue to keep you apprised of our plans and truly hope to see you at another MS Society event in 2014!
