Founded in 2006, The Sue Burke MS Youth Foundation is a donor-advised fund of The Community Foundation. The SBMSYF is dedicated to creating awareness about youth affected by MS, offering support and assistance to those affected, and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle while living with MS. Beginning in 2007, the Foundation will offer college scholarships to affected youth, as well as youth programming focused on active living. Ultimately, the Foundation hopes to serve as a resource center for youth and the families of youth challenged by MS.
About Sue Burke
Sue Burke was diagnosed with MS in 2003. As a tennis coach, triathlete, and marathoner, Sue was determined that this diagnosis would not relegate her to spectator status in life and athletics. With the help and incredible generosity of the local community, Sue has been able to access a network of gifted health professionals and create a support system that has enabled her to live her passions. She wholeheartedly believes that remaining active has helped offset many of the potential symptoms and physical deterioration associated with MS. Through the foundation, Sue hopes to share this message and assist youth affected by MS to create lifestyles in which they can truly LIVE with MS.
The Boston Marathon is the first of several races and tennis events in which Sue will participate to benefit the SBMSYF. As an endowed fund of The Community Foundation, all donations to the SBMSYF are tax deductible and will support Colorado youth impacted by MS. You can support Sue and contribute to the SBMSYF by sending a contribution directly to The Community Foundation at 1123 Spruce Street, Boulder, CO 80302 or by making an online donation.
