Athletes Get NEWD for MS

Brookfield's Ashley Kumlien recently completed a run of more than 3,200 miles across the US raising awareness and money for Multiple Sclerosis. Ashley went on this journey in honor of her mother, Jill, who has battled this debilitating disease for nearly 28 years.

In celebration of her unbelievable accomplishment and to help raise even more money for MS, MOCT is hosting a "fashion meets fitness" show on November 4th. Local amateur and pro athletes will walk the runway in both casual and fitness wear--all of which will be up for auction. The "models" are runners and cyclists from the Milwaukee area, along with pro triathletes and Olympians, members of the Wave and Admirals, and even a few Green Bay Packers are scheduled to appear and take the runway! 


On November 4th come celebrate Ashley's unbelievable accomplishment and raise some money for her non-profit, MS Run the US. Models will be wearing new designs from NEWD Clothing Company, Live the Dream fashions as well as fitness gear from local running outfitters. Every ensemble on display will be available for purchase that night. Oh and you might recognize a few of the models from tv... or the gridiron, the field or the ice. 

Auction items include autographed Green Bay Packers gear; a TREK bike; premier tickets to Bucks, Brewers, Marquette games; gift cards for SPiN Milwaukee, Replay Sports Bar, The Knick and other local restaurants; salon and spa packages among others.
