Marianne Green


2009 - Marianne Green

For 35 years, Marianne Green, age 70, has dedicated each and every Monday to helping out at the National MS Society, Minnesota Chapter office. As a person who lives with the effects of multiple sclerosis, Marianne has always believed it’s important to do whatever she can to support the society’s work to end the disease. When she first started volunteering in 1974, there were no disease-modifying treatments available and Minnesota Bike MS rides didn’t even exist. Roughly 1,800 Mondays and three office buildings later — the movement to end MS has made great strides, and Marianne has been a part of it every step of the way. As a chapter volunteer, Marianne answers phones to ensure people affected by MS get the information and help they need. She also makes thank-you calls to people who have made memorial gifts to the society.
