Chuck King has been volunteering with the Greater Illinois Chapter for five years. He volunteers his time taking pictures at many of the Greater Illinois Chapter’s fundraising events such as Bike MS and MS Slugfest. Chuck is very positive at the events and is always willing to help whenever needed.
“After my wife was diagnosed with MS in 1991, it became a learning experience for both of us. I see subtle changes in my wife and I keep thinking there will be a cure soon,” said Chuck. “By going to seminars and MS events I saw all of the other people that are living with MS and decided that I should do my part.”
Chuck’s volunteer work impacts the MS community. By informing people through the pictures he takes, he can show how MS can be defeated, in part, with the help of all volunteers.
“Without the help of volunteers, there would not be the advancements in medicine that there are now,” said Chuck. “The feelings that you get at the end of the day at an MS event cannot be described. I know that I have done my part in helping all people who have MS.”
