About the National Multiple Sclerosis Society MS stops people from moving. We exist to make sure it doesn't. The National MS Society addresses the challenges of each person affected by MS by funding cutting edge research, driving change through advocacy, facilitating professional education, collaborating with MS organizations around the world, and providing programs and services designed to help people with MS and their families move their lives forward. We are people who want to do something about MS NOW, and are dedicated to achieving a world free of MS. Join the movement at www.nationalMSsociety.org. Studies show that early and ongoing treatment with an FDA-approved therapy can reduce future disease activity and improve quality of life for people with multiple sclerosis. Talk to your health care professional and contact the National MS Society at www.nationalMSsociety.org or 1-800- 344-4867 to learn about ways to help people with multiple sclerosis and about current research that may one day reveal a cure.
The Michigan Chapter of the MS Society is filled with great people that are passionate about promoting MS awareness and responding to the needs of those affected by MS. They are constantly thinking of new ways to reach every person that MS touches, young and old!
The MS Society is a great organization. The staff is extremely passionate about helping those affecting and finding a cure. In addition to the MS Society being a fun place to volunteer, they are also the most well organized non-profit that I've ever worked with. Their team is a well oiled machine.

The employees and other volunteers at this organization truly care about the cause. Their enthusiasm and commitment is apparent. The events are well-organized and thoroughly enjoyable. The individual investment of time of each person in the programs department is a clear indication that they care. Very rarely are they “too busy” to speak with a client or take time to educate anyone who asks.
I would suggest that everyone get involved because the likelihood that someone you know has MS is very high and this is a great way to get access to information that can be passed on!
great staff to volunteer for,if you work days there are weekend walk and bike events in the spring & early summer. in the fall is the marathon fluid station. Or during the week in preparation for these events are mailing and telephone calls to be made. one can volunteer in the office every day or hours that are convenient to your schedule. I have been doing these events for the past 20 some years and this is my charity of choice. Join the movement and join the volunteer staff in 2009. Vicki
