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 (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.
