Team Blitz is Back!!

By Amy Nelson

Team Blitz is back for the 4th year in a row! Together, we have raised over $220,000 hitting over $70k each year for the past 3 years. While I'm still getting over the playoffs, I'm excited to launch our fundraising efforts for this year including both the Walk MS event and the pub crawl "Drink MS". Walk MS and Drink MS are going to be two huge parties and YOU'RE INVITED!

Walk MS is on April 14th, 2013 and Drink MS is targeted for March 16th, 2013. While I'm working out the details of the pub crawl, please SAVE THE DATE, details coming in a future update.

On the Pub Crawl side, we have grown every year.

Year 1: 125 people - $6k raised

Year 2: 200 people - $9k raised

Year 3: 325 people!!! - $12k raised!!! We had live music, trivia, amazing raffle prizes and much more.

Year 4: We are literally too big for the bars. Block your calendar now, but expect for a full on Belltown takeover on March 16th!

I'm excited about everything we have done together to help and grow our community, but there is still work to do. Even if you can't make it to the events, you can help by spreading the word about Multiple Sclerosis. The easiest way to do this is by helping raise money through Team Blitz. Every year I try to build the largest team and raise the largest amount of money. To do that, I need your help.

1. Save the Date - March 16th (Pub Crawl) - We will be commandeering Belltown once again, only bigger, better and crazier than before!

2. Save Another Date - April 14th (Walk MS) - With the changes to Husky Stadium, we will be in the Husky parking lot throwing a huge tailgate party!

3. Join Team Blitz - Go to and sign up to be a member of the team, click "Join our Team". Tell 5 new people you signed up and send them the link to your personal fundraising page that is automatically created.

4. Donate - If you join the team or decide not to, it is easy to donate. Go to and look for "Amy Nelson" on the list. Click on that. Then, click donate to participant.

5. Hook it up! - If you have a connection to a restaurant, service, or activity that we can raffle off at the pub crawl, let me know!
