More accolades for Team Sugarbee during the recent MS Top Fundraiser Banquet at the Westin in downtown Denver. The Team was awarded 2nd place for Friends & Family team fundraising for the Colorado/Wyoming MS Society. Together you raised a total of $105,901 for the Bike MS event held in June 2016. 

Tim "Terrific" Walker, Jr. (Captain of Team Sugarbee), accepted the award on behalf of the Team. Also of note, Tim Walker, Jr. and Eric Walker were recognized as returning members of the Top 100 Fundraiser Club. As we learn of other TSB members who reached this goal, we'll list them here.

NMSS Lifetime Achievment Award for Mom & Pops Sugarbee

Congratulations to Betty & Tim Walker aka (Mom and Pops Sugarbee) who received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National MS Society at the recent MS Top Fundraiser Banquet. They are being honored for their 20+ years of volunteer service as co-captains of the Team Sugarbee Volunteers at rest stops and the lunch stops for Bike MS-150 Tours since 1996. 

I know every Team Sugarbee volunteer and rider is so proud of these two and the entire Walker family for their tireless efforts.

In an email to Team Sugarbee supporters, Betty had the following words of thanks, "Thank you to all of our family and friends who have helped us work the Team Sugarbee rest stops all of these years. This award is a result of all of the work you have done to help Team Sugarbee TAKE THE STING OUT OF MS! We couldn't have done this without YOU! ALL OF OUR LOVE COMES BUZZING YOUR WAY!!!"
