We have had a Night at the Races to raise money for MSUD research for the past 7 years.

We live in a small community in NE Ohio, and over these 7 years we have been able to raise nearly $40,000 for the MSUD Family Support Group to use wherever it is needed. We usually sell about 250 tickets to this event, and we have many prizes and baskets donated for raffles. It is a catered event and we sell 100 horses for $10 each that the buyer can name and own for a race. Tickets to enter the event are usually $15 each, and this includes entry, dinner, and drinks. It is always a fantastic time and is the talk of the town when it comes around annually. In 2015, our annual Night at the Races will be held on October 10. We always advertise it in our local newspaper and social media has been a huge help in getting the word out. Friends and family have come in from out of town for this event, not only for Derek, which is obviously the main reason, but also because it is such a great time.

Dave and Sandy Bulcher have made the trip within the past few years and in 2014 we were joined by Jordan Bulcher as well! It’s always awesome for our community to see and meet other people that are affected by this disease and also that we as the MSUD community appreciate their support.

If anyone is ever interested in joining us, our doors are always open to you at our annual MSUD Night at the Races!!!!
