MS Awareness Council

Awareness Council members coordinate and execute awareness activities — leveraging existing awareness efforts to increase community relevance (MS Awareness Week, Walk MS, World MS Day, etc.) — thereby growing knowledge of MS and the National MS Society and inspiring others to impact the MS movement through personal action.
This volunteer position requires a year-long commitment, with expectation of 1-10 hours of work per month. If you're interested in becoming an Awareness Council member, please contact Will at or 612-335-7992.
