MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS?

WE WANT YOU!

 

70/Four70 MS Men's group No fee to attend.

1st Saturday of most months

Murphy Creek Golf Course

Where haven’t you been?!  When was the last time you got out of the house to share your thoughts and discuss your experiences with other men who have MS?

Staying at home does nothing to lessen the impacts of MS. Just as aerobics is exercise for the body, being with others who have MS is exercise for the psyche.

Please note: we meet the first Saturday of most months and we encourage you to verify, RSVP and/or just show up!

Why are we called 70/Four70? Simply because we meet in the area not far from the intersection of Interstate 70 and Colorado toll road E-470.

Murphy Creek Golf CourseOn 3 August 2013, the 70/Four70 MS Men’s Group began meeting on the first Saturday of each month at 9:30 am in the conference room between the Pro Shop and the Murphy Creek Tavern and Restaurant at Murphy Creek Golf Course, 1700 S. Old Tom Morris Road, Aurora, CO 80018. [map] All men with MS are invited to meetings.

Sponsored by the Colorado-Wyoming Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, this small informal all male group discusses all aspects of what it means to be a man with the disease we have in common. In many cases the usual roles of husband/family member, employed individual or bread-winner, maybe even driver, have radically changed.

Our discussions are informal in an open meeting atmosphere of mutual understanding. The men in the group share what’s on their minds and how they’ve dealt with issues raised by others and suggestions for coping.

If you are a man with MS and at least 18-years of age, you already have a membership card, so please join us!

“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be . . . amidst the simple beauty of nature. As long as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”
― Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl
