Help the Colorado-Wyoming Chapter make its largest gift to MS research ever!
The Chapter Board of Trustees has challenged our community to collectively give an additional $250,000 to MS research this year. Every increased dollar you give to MS research will be matched.

Although tremendous strides have been made in recent years, there is still great urgency to find more and better solutions for all people living with MS. Your increased gift will:
- Find answers for Progressive MS. Despite advances in other forms of MS, there are no treatments for progressive MS. The Society launched the International Progressive MS Alliance in 2014 to fund research specific to progressive MS. There are more clinical trials for progressive MS treatments than ever before.
- Drive myelin repair research to find treatments that stop disease progression and restore lost function. Current MS treatments only slow disease activity.
- Fund new lifestyle and wellness research so people with MS can apply proven diet, exercise and mood interventions to manage MS and live their best every day.
- Further genetic research to improve tools that will help doctors prescribe the right treatment for the right person at the right time. No more guess work in choosing a treatment option.
- Identify MS risk factors. We know a few, but we want a full picture of what environmental and lifestyle factors are causing MS so that we can prevent and stop the disease.
There is more promising research in the pipeline than ever before and breakthroughs are right around the corner. We have a bold vision to make our Chapter’s largest contribution to MS research ever. Will you unlock the matching funds?
Golden Circle members are fueling progress by annually giving $1,000 or more to the National MS Society. This is a nationwide community of leaders who share a passion for a world free of MS. A leading benefit of Golden Circle membership is the opportunity to connect with these remarkable individuals nationally and in your local area.
We also connect Golden Circle members to updates about the advances in research and care that are most meaningful to them. In 2015, Colorado and Wyoming Golden Circle Members collectively gave $1,389,383 to support people with MS.
