ORGANIZATION: National MS Society, Upstate New York

Bike MS logo

Bike MS: ROC the Great Lakes journey starts right between Buffalo and Rochester. From there, this one-day ride will have participants cycling along the scenic shoreline of Lake Ontario and the rural roads of western New York.

We need volunteer support to help this event run smoothly. CPR/First Aid certified volunteers are needed at the start/finish area and at rest stops along the route to ensure safety of the participants. These volunteers may need to respond to minor medical incidents - cuts or scrapes from bike falls, minor cases of dehydration, etc. Medical emergencies will be handled by dialing 911.

Please submit your interest in volunteering here, and you will be contacted with more details. Or, send an email to:

Travis Hughes, Volunteer Engagement Specialist, travis.hughes@nmss.org

Thank you!
