This group is very organized and does a great job of getting vendors out there to spread the word about new treatments and help for people with MS.

It was super fun and very enjoyable. Everyone is so nice and helpful and just great to be around. There is a small amount of training needed depending on what group you are assigned with but it was still amazing. I look forward to next year!

This supports such a great cause that needs more volunteers, more action, and more funding for research!

The National MS Society is a great organization for people living with multiple sclerosis and their family. They have many fundraisers to raise money for MS and work with doctors and researches in finding a cure. The Lone Star Chapter's BP MS150 is the biggest fundraiser of its kind in the nation and raised over 17 million for multiple sclerosis in 2012. Volunteering for this Society is a great way to help others with MS and help us get one step closer to finding a cure for this disease.

I have been volunteering for the NMSS for 18 years and have met some really wonderful people and made a lot of good friends over the years. The people you help are the most thankful for any and all you can do for them. Have also made professional connections thru the various programs.
