About MS and the Society

When one woman – Sylvia Lawry – took action to seek help for her brother, the National MS Society was founded. Since then, volunteers have fueled our mission, including our volunteer Board of Directors and local Trustees around the country, volunteers who lead self-help groups and support others living with MS, volunteers at fundraising events including Bike MS and Walk MS, donors, fundraisers, healthcare professionals, scientific researchers, and more. Volunteers:

  • Share professional expertise
  • Use special talents
  • Give time
  • Learn new skills
  • Connect others to the MS movement

Once you complete the volunteer application or sign up for a volunteer opportunity in your area, a staff member will contact you to discuss your interests, and review the Society’s Code of Conduct, confidentiality and privacy standards.
