We can’t do this without you. Sign up to volunteer today!
The success of the Bike MS is directly related to the wonderful volunteers who help make the event go off without a hitch. We welcome volunteers with a wide range of talents and skills. There is only one requirement: to want to do something NOW about MS. There are many jobs to choose from including registration, rest stop help, and cheering at the finish line! To volunteer, please call Sarah Lutz at (516) 740-7227 or (631) 864-8337 ext. 53208 or email email@example.com .
