Our History

Can Do MS was founded in 1984 by former Olympic bronze medalist, Jimmie Heuga who was diagnosed with MS when he was 26. Advised against exercise, Jimmie found that it improved his function and his outlook! Jimmie's "can do" attitude lives on in our programs that help people see possibilities and take steps to reach their personal goals.
