Carrot‐Top Industries, one of the leading providers of flags and patriotic products, is a national sponsor of this year’s MuckFest MS events in Boston May 18, Philadelphia June 8, New Jersey July 20, Chicago August 17, and Denver September 14. MuckFest is a 5K run through a muddy 18+ obstacle course to raise funds for the National MS Society to help bring attention to what MS is, how it affects people who live with MS, and support research efforts to treat and eventually cure MS. MuckFest's unique course includes obstacles such as mud-filled pits, trenches, craters, and a lot of laughter from the participants. MuckFest brings out the kid in all of us!

Carrot‐Top Industries donated $70,000 to the National MS Society to go towards MS research while also helping purchase 1,000 MuckFest towels, 25 team flags (5 flags for each MuckFest location), and a MuckFest backdrop for team photos. We want to give a special thanks to TowelsOutlet.com for their great work creating the custom, high-quality towels so MuckFest participants have something to wipe the mud off of their faces. 100% of the funds raised by the MuckFest MS participants benefit the Society, with over $30 million raised to date. Carrot‐Top has enjoyed working with the National MS Society to make this year’s events a success. 

Carrot Top is a family‐owned business with a personal connection to MS. Carrot‐Top’s Owner and President Dwight Morris has supported MS research for many years since his wife Lynne Morris has lived with Multiple Sclerosis for 45 years. “I wish to extend my thanks to the National MS Society for all the work over a course of many years that my wife Lynne has had to endure what is now advanced, secondary progressive MS since her diagnosis in 1974,” said Dwight Morris.

“The National MS Society and their cause is very near and dear to my family and our company,” said Liz Morris, Dwight and Lynne’s daughter and Carrot-Top Vice President. “We are happy and fortunate to be able to make this donation to fund MS research.”
