Join the movement with hundreds of other volunteers at one of our springtime Walk MS events hosted throughout the region. These community-based celebrations are the Society’s most accessible events, and they’re the easiest way to meet people with MS and see our mission in action.

Be part of the Muck Squad! We need over 300 volunteers to make this event a success. With jobs ranging from cheerleading, lifeguarding to directing participants through muddy obstacles, we’re sure to have something to fit your personality.

Bike MS: City to Shore Ride offers beautiful terrain and friendly people while providing its own unique experience for participants and volunteers. Volunteer jobs vary and include rest and lunch stops, cyclist registration and being a part of the fun-filled finish line.

Challenge Walk MS is a two-day, 26.2-mile walk to a world free of MS. Volunteers can experience this event by signing up for a single day or by supporting the walkers both days as a crew member. You are sure to meet new friends and make lasting memories during this special weekend.
