Walker Family Honored with MS Society 2022 Philanthropic Family of the Year

On November 10, 2022, the Walker Family was recognized as the Philanthropic Family of the Year by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society at its national Society Leadership Conference in Dallas, Texas. Tim Walker, Jr. and Eric Walker were proud to represent our beloved Sugar Bee Kelly Walker, the entire Walker family and all the Team Sugar Bee riders and volunteers for this special honor.

Kelly Walker Student Hive Fund

Fundraising is underway for the
Kelly Walker Student Hive at Colorado State University (CSU). It's a perfect tribute to Kelly who spent her life committed to the happiness and well being of others. Here's more information about this opportunity from CSU's website. Please consider making a gift as a way to honor Kelly and her love of the CSU community of students, faculty and staff.

Give to the Kelly Walker Student Hive Fund

Kelly Walker (B.S., '88; M.S., '91, '02) was an instructor in the Department of Health and Exercise Science at Colorado State University and served as the fieldwork coordinator for health promotion and sports medicine. She worked tirelessly for students until her early retirement due to her multiple sclerosis diagnosis. After retiring, Kelly continued to support and invest in students by becoming a scholarship donor. On May 3, 2022, Kelly passed away with her family by her side.

To celebrate Kelly's advocacy, leadership, and dedication to student wellness at Colorado State University, the Kelly Walker Student Hive has been created. In the Student Hive, students can rest, recharge, and focus on their wellness and health. The Student Hive will be located on the second floor of the Moby Arena, right across from Kelly's former office.

In Memory of Kelly Sugar Bee Walker

It is with heavy hearts we must tell you that Kelly Ann Walker, our beloved Sugar Bee, passed away peacefully in her home on May 3, 2022, surrounded by her family and her dog, Alice. We are grateful for all your love, support and commitment to Kelly and for Team Sugar Bee over these many years. It meant the world to Kelly and the entire Walker family. 

We will continue to ride for Kelly and for everyone else with MS, and we will continue to fight for a cure for this disease in her memory. We already miss her so much, but she continues to inspire us.

Details for Kelly’s Memorial Service on July 23, 2022 are included at the end of the obituary, as well as where contributions can be made for those who would like to honor Kelly and her indefatigable spirit and irrepressible joy. We love you Sugar Bee!
