There’s no such thing as too much sharing
With MuckFest MS Denver, it’s definitely time to overshare using hashtag #MuckFestMS
Pretty Perfect, Denver!
Although Friday started with a picturesque blanket of snow in Larkspur, Saturday blossomed brightly with blue skies and highs in the 70s. The mountain backdrop sure was dramatic, but you Denver muckers brought some mile-high comedy to the proceedings. The dirty shenanigans started (where else?) at the start line, where we witnessed well-executed pre-run faceplants in the mud and some excellent examples of the ancient art of mud-piling; local anthropologists were fascinated. Out on the course, you were all business, if by business you mean "funny business." Loony leaps and wacky acrobatics abounded — the very definition of athletic slapstick. BIG THANKS to the awesome Denver volunteers, which included a very enthusiastic women's basketball team. And thanks goes out to the Music Mountain Amphitheater for providing a beautiful canvas on which we could paint our muddy mosaic. As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and from our perspective, Denver, you were all picture-perfect!
A special message from the Colorado-Wyoming Chapter of the National MS Society. Thank you for coming out and making MuckFest® MS Denver such a great success. The National MS Society, Colorado-Wyoming Chapter would like to thank all the runners, volunteers and staff who came out to run, help and support each other this weekend. Every day of the year, we work hard to support people living with multiple sclerosis. There is still time to support the mission behind the “muck” and help us reach our fundraising goal. Make a donation online at www.MuckFestMS.com or call the chapter.
