About

The National MS Society is looking for volunteers to help with our upcoming event - Walk MS Orange County!

Walk MS will be held on Sunday, May 7th at Crane Park. Walk MS is a charity walk series that takes place in over 550 locations with more than 300,000 people participating annually. When you participate in Walk MS, you are helping create a world free of multiple sclerosis. Together, we become a powerful force. Together, we will end MS forever.

Groups and individuals of all ages and abilities are invited to volunteer. We are always looking for youth clubs, corporate and service-oriented community groups to lend a hand before, during, and after our events. There is only one requirement: a desire to end MS now!
