MS Cup
There are only three days until the 2014 MS Cup! Thanks so much to all of you who have already made contributions! If you can still help out, any amount you are comfortable contributing would be greatly appreciated!

This is the link to the National MS Society web page where you can make a secure online contribution.

Please click on any of the names in the box on the left side and contribute through their link, or better yet, join me in the fundraising! Having a team is always stronger than working solo. You don’t even need to be here or sail in the race to be on the team. Just click on the 'Join' button and create your own page to do some fundraising through your boat, friends, family or co-workers on behalf of the MS Cup.

If you prefer to make contributions the 'old fashioned way,' you can send a check (made payable to National MS Society) to my home address:
