Volunteers are the backbone of our events and essential to our success. Committee members are integral to the planning, execution, and success of Walk MS.

The goal of the Walk MS Boulder/Windsor Committee is to create awareness, dedication, and excitement for new and returning teams and participants.

  • Marketing of event/spreading MS awareness through various avenues (dissemination of materials, tabling events, social media, presentations, networking events, etc.)
  • Assisting with retention and acquisition of participants/volunteers via phone calls, emails, card writing, brainstorming ideas, etc.
  • Obtaining sponsors and corporate teams by introducing Society staff to current and future relationships and connections

Qualifications and Expectations:

  • Attendance at monthly committee meetings (in-person or virtual)
    • Note: access to a smartphone, tablet or laptop/desktop computer is essential

Mission Statement

People affected by MS can live their best lives as we stop MS in its tracks, restore what has been lost and end MS forever.

Description

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease that affects the central nervous system by disrupting the flow of information from the brain to the body. It is an elusive disease with no known cause and no known cure. Symptoms vary from person to person depending on where the central nervous system is affected, making it hard to diagnose. MS generally strikes in the prime of life--ages 20-50, and 73 percent of those diagnosed are women.

* 14,000+ in Colorado and Wyoming are living with MS

The Colorado-Wyoming Chapter contributes research funds each year to the National MS Society's nearly $50 million annual research budget. The Society is the largest private MS research funder in the nation, providing support for 440 research projects worldwide. FDA approved medicines are now available that slow the progression of the disease.

Seeking out and engaging volunteers to the MS cause is at the very core of our business. We have opportunities across Colorado and Wyoming. To find out about opportunities in your area, please visit our website: http://www.nationalmssociety.org/Get-Involved/Volunteer
