Become a Movement Ambassador! Inspire. Educate. Move.

Simply put, Movement Ambassadors are people who want to do something now to end MS and are passionate about engaging other people in the movement. Movement Ambassadors are people connected to MS in some way, whether by living with the disease, participating in our events, volunteering or donating to our organization. Individuals in each one of these groups has a story to tell and can be a part of our mission!

The primary role of Movement Ambassadors is to engage others. Movement Ambassadors can do a wide range of awareness activities from simply talking to someone about your involvement with the National MS Society to manning information tables at local health fairs and providing presentations to community groups. Movement Ambassadors act as an army of people spreading awareness about MS and the National MS Society in our local community.

Interested volunteers will be trained to be spokespersons representing the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Central & Eastern Virginia Chapter and will be provided with all needed guidelines and materials. To RSVP for an upcoming Movement Ambassador training or for more information, please call or email Robyn Hirsch at 757-319-4252 or

About Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide.
