Denis Yermak has been volunteering with the National MS Society, Greater IL Chapter for 10 years. He volunteered at Walk MS at the finish line to cheer walkers. He also volunteered once at Bike MS: Tour de Farms as a packet pick up assistant and as a greeter at an MS Family Day at a museum event.
“There is a positive energy and feeling at Walk MS with people around all helping in the fight against MS,” said Denis.
Denis has MS and is glad that he is participating by spreading the word about MS and attracting other people to get involved.
“The impact of one person is not that big, but when there are many people working toward the same goal the individual efforts that are added together make the total impact significant,” said Denis.
Denis hopes to continue volunteering in the future.
