Morgan Chaffin

Welcome to my 2017 Team Endurance fundraising page!  

I’m excited to be part of Team Endurance for MS for the second year!  While my life is filled with health, wellness, teaching, coaching, mentoring, and my own personal triathlon related goals, there are many others out there who aren’t so fortunate, which is why I’m happy to lend my support to such a worthy cause.

When I’m not training, I’m teaching in the PE Department at the University of Nebraska Omaha, coaching Masters Swimming at Lifetime Fitness, or developing training plans for driven AG triathletes. One of the most challenging triathlons I have on my schedule this season, is Alaskaman, which has been called, “The most extreme Ironman in North America." I’m definitely up for the cold-water swim, and 7 mile run up Mount Alyeska to a 4200ft altitude finish! I’m also looking forward to being back for Trifest for MS this year, where I’ll have the opportunity to meet up with Scott and Jo Rampy, follow Team Endurance, and Triple Threat Racing athletes!

The fundraising I do continues to be dedicated to my father, who left my life far too early, but still remains a part of my life, and dreams every day!

Funds raised through the efforts of the Rampy MS Research Foundation from our Team Endurance for MS and Trifest for MS activities go to fuel research in the US.  Below are the highlights of our footprint as of today.

  • Support 20% of the MS research at UAMS in Little Rock, AR in the Rampy MS Research Lab
  • Support the work of two research doctors and two clinical doctors doing part-time research
  • Five year commitment to raise $250,000 began in 2013
  • Foundation will embark on new grant model in 2018 to award scholarships and grants to leading scientist in the US through grant submission process
  • Research has been able to reproduce the MS gene in animal model
  • Research currently in trial in animal model to isolate the most common proteolipid protein in MS patients
