Yolanda Treigut’s lifelong volunteer career and commitment started in 1978, shortly after she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Since then, she has dedicated extensive time and effort to facilitating the South Cook MS self-help group. She is a leading fundraiser; her Walk MS team raised over $55,000 this year. Yolanda also serves on the Board of Trustees, is currently the chair of the Volunteer Development Committee, and serves on many steering committees both locally and nationally.
Yolanda has received multiple awards and accolades from the National MS Society and the Chicago community for her involvement in improving the lives of people with disabilities through advocacy, programs support, fundraising and education. Yolanda’s motivation is the impact she has on the lives of people living with MS and their families.
