Help Fight MS with Mountain High Suckers

Wednesday, August 17, 2016

Mountain High Suckers is thrilled to be a sponsor of the 7th Annual Clinic Charity Classic Golf Tournament

Since 2009, the annual event has raised approximately $300,000 for the Colorado-Wyoming chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Proceeds are used to benefit MS patients and to fund research dedicated to finding a cure for the disease.

“Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body,” according to the National MS Society. While MS is not necessarily fatal, it decreases life expectancy by an average of seven years because of complications from the disease.

Ryan Cook, the Clinic’s general manager, said, “Cannabis has been show to have a profound effect on MS patients including muscle spasms, speech and eyesight. Some of our wheelchair-bound patients have said that they can walk unaided when they take cannabis. That is extremely encouraging and we want to make sure that we are doing all that we can to help our patients and friends. Whether that be product advancements or fundraising efforts to support research.”

The tournament has grown so much that this year includes a move to a larger course, the Arrowhead Golf Club in Littleton.

Golf slots are booked, but there are still spectator tickets available for $50.

Come see us on the green August 26, 2016 at Arrowhead Golf Club or visit our booth and help end MS!
