A Quest to Raise Money for Comprehensive MS Care

April 16, 2015 Swedish Blogger

Ever since Amy’s husband was diagnosed with MS, life has not been the same. Rehabilitation and treatment at the Swedish MS Center have become a routine part of their lives. Grateful for the resources available at the MS Center, Amy has gone on a quest to raise money for the clinic through her marathon training. With the end goal being the Seattle Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon on June 13, Amy has been running three days a week and cross training with 60 minutes of Barre3 classes. While somehow juggling two young children, her own business, and the ups and downs of this disease, Amy has trained relentlessly and will graciously donate all the money raised to the MS Center.


  • For every mile she runs, she will donate $1.  
  • For every cross training Barre3 class completed, she will donate $5.  
  • Upon crossing the Rock 'n' Roll finish line, she will donate $100 and Microsoft will generously match 100% of the total amount raised. 

Amy wishes the money raised to go towards patient and family education/support at the Swedish MS Center. During her training, Amy is hoping for your encouragement, support and love. If you wish to donate on behalf of Amy's cause to the Swedish MS Center, click here or call 206.991.2099.
