`MS Rockstars’ from San Diego raising multiple sclerosis donations in Arizona

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s San Diego-based Pacific South Coast Chapter is participating at the 10th annual P.F. Chang’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Marathon and Half-Marathon on Sunday, Jan. 20 with a team of runners called the “MS Rockstars.”
In exchange for donating a minimum of $1,750, members of the MS Rockstars are receiving personalized training, VIP treatments on race day and other perks, including pre-race carbo load team meal, transportation from host hotel to and from the race start-finish line and exclusive hospitality lounge with catered food. The funds raised will benefit the National MS Society in MS research and providing programs and services for people with MS, a chronic, unpredictable and disabling disease of the central nervous system with no known cause, cure or prevention. For information about the MS Rockstars, call 1-800-344-4867 or visit www.MSrockstars.com.
