The Bean Team's 2015 MS Events

The Bean Team has a very busy 2015 ahead of us.  We have several of our "regular" events and even a new one!  Always keeping it exciting and raising as much money as we can.  Do you want to join us?  Check out what we'll be doing below and click the link to sign up to volunteer or participate in any event!
Saturday, March 7th
Climb To The Top
Katelyn and I have volunteered at this event for the past 2 years and it has been a lot of fun despite the very early wake up call.  This year a few more friends are joining us which should make it even more fun!  One of the most impressive things about this event is seeing all of the firefighters climb in full gear and they do it SO fast!

Sunday, March 22nd
2nd Annual Trivia Night MS Fundraiser at The Draft
We are bringing Trivia Night back for a 2nd year but in a new location.  Grab some friends and make a team.  We will have awesome raffle prizes including Red Sox tickets, a Keurig, a Shark steamer, beer/wine and restaurant gift cards!  {$10 per person when paid in advance. 4 to 6 people per team!}
More info to come as the date gets closer but feel free to email me with questions.

Sunday, April 12th
Boston MS Walk
Unfortunately the site for the Boston Walk doesn't seem to be working right at the moment but I will update the link as soon as it is.  In the meantime save the date for our most popular event!  The walk starts and finished at BU with a free lunch! Team shirts are $5 per person (I covered the difference) and I'm thinking purple this year (just for Laney)!  This walk is 3 miles and goes at a slow pace so all levels welcome!

Saturday, April 25th
MuckFest MS 
This event came to "Boston" aka Devons, MA two years ago and The Bean Team has participated both years.  We are so excited to return this year for another day of fun.  It is more wet than muddy as you make your way through the 5K race and obstacle course.  There is no fundraising for this event but there is a registration fee (which increases as the date gets closer so sign up now and save money).  Oh and I'm the official photographer!  Cheerleaders also welcome!

Saturday, May 2nd
Ride The Vineyard
This is our new event for 2015!  Katelyn does the CCG each year but is unable to this year due to another commitment.  So we decided to try this event since we've heard it is a lot of fun (and a really good excuse to go to the Vineyard)!  It has 20, 40 and 60 mile options and if I can do it anyone can! If you register do it with a ferry ticket (just easier) and check with me first b/c I can probably get you a discount code.

September 11th-13th
MS Challenge Walk Cape Cod
The best event of them all!  This is such a fabulous 3 day event on the Cape.  We done it for several years now and it gets better every year.  So far Jenn, Emily and I are walking and my mom and Kate are doing Crew.  We would love to grow our team so let me know if you are interested in either walking or crewing!  Each walker has to raise $1,500 for the walk but I'll help you if needed so don't let that scare you off.  Last year we far exceeded the required amount!

So there you have it!  It is going to be a busy year but a great one.  There will hopefully be one or two other fundraisers mixed in there somewhere so watch out for more info to come (hint: a wine tasting)!

Please let me know if you have any questions about any of the events.

P.S.  If you have anything you would like to donate for a raffle item at one of my fundraisers let me know!  We will give you plenty of social media shout outs and recognition at the event.
