Hopping 4 A Cure

Hopping 4 A Cure™ for Multiple Sclerosis is a Trademarked, Incorporated, Full 501(c)3 non-profit organization that hosts Hopscotch Tournaments raising money and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. Proceeds go toward College Scholarships, Caregiver Support, and Alternative Medical Research.

Areas of Support

College Scholarships

We award Scholarships of up to $1,500 to Students who are diagnosed or affected by Multiple Sclerosis at the schools/universities we host events

Caregiver Support

Whether it be paying for a Caregiver/aid to assist the family or if a spouse takes off work to care-give and needs supplemental income, we provide financial support to those in need

Alternative Research

With many chapters being located at universities, it’s much easier to directly fund those experimenting on the leading edge of medical advancement

Recess Olympics

Go for the Gold and compete against friends, rival organizations and other community groups in one of our intense recess events ranging from 4-Square to Kickball. Other primary events include:

• Capture the Flag

• Jump Roping & Double Dutch
