Hirst Applegate attorneys and staff spent a fun-filled evening, learning how to make sushi from Cheyenne’s own “Bengoshi Bob” Walters while supporting the Multiple Sclerosis Society.  Bob, a local attorney (bengoshi, in Japanese) with the Attorney General’s office here in Cheyenne, teaches classes on sushi and Japanese culture to raise money for the MS Society’s Bike MS Wyoming.  Working with salmon, shrimp, crab, spicy tuna, and even brightly colored fish roe, the Hirst Applegate team made delicious sushi rolls under Bengoshi Bob’s tutelage, while kimono-clad Bike MS volunteers assisted the participants and talked about how MS has affected their lives.  Jonna Patton, a top Bike MS fundraiser and co-captain of Team Bioness Vitesse, inspired Hirst Applegate with stories of how an MS diagnosis has not stopped her from riding her bike in the annual two-day and 100 mile-plus Bike MS ride.  Hirst Applegate applauds Jonna for her courage, strength, and ability to face the challenges of MS by living life to its fullest.  The law firm came together to enjoy a fantastic and delicious night of sushi, and, in the process, was proud to support the MS Society in its research, education, and advocacy efforts on behalf of Jonna and the more than 1,000 people living with MS in Wyoming.  Who knew gaining inspiration and providing support could be so much fun!
