Enthusiastic volunteers are key to the success of Bike MS rides. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Georgia Chapter needs volunteers to help out during our Bike MS: Cox Atlanta Ride. There are opportunities for groups and individuals. Volunteering is a great way to have fun, meet people, learn new skills and help the thousands of Georgians living with MS.

When should I arrive for my shift?
Arrive 15 minutes before your shift begins. This ensures time to park, check in and find your volunteer location.

There will be a designated parking area at the Start, Finish and Overnight site for all participants, family, friends and volunteers. Parking attendants will be on site to direct you to specific parking areas. There will be parking for those staying at the host hotels.
Where do I go when I arrive to volunteer?
Go directly to the Volunteer Check-In booth at the start, finish or overnight location. You will turn in your volunteer agreement form, receive your t-shirt and instructions. (If you do not have a volunteer agreement form, one will be available to fill out when you check in. Those under 18 must have a guardian signature).
Breakpoint volunteers- you will report directly to your break point and the group’s break point captain will call the Community Development Manager upon arrival.
Lunch on route volunteers- will report directly to the lunch location. The group’s captain will call the Community Development Manager upon arrival.
What if it rains?
The Ride will take place rain or shine, so please dress appropriately. If there is a chance for rain, remember to bring a rain poncho/jacket and umbrella as well as a change of shoes and socks.
Will I be able to eat?
Each volunteer receives a food wristband, but we do ask that you eat before or after your volunteer shift. In this scenario, please alert someone at Volunteer Check-In. Please refer to meal times for your convenience.
