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.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society funds more MS research, offers more services to people with MS, provides more professional education programs and advances more MS advocacy efforts than any other MS organization in the world. Through its home office and fifty-state network of chapters, the National MS Society provides assistance to over a million people annually in its continuing mission to end the devastating effects of multiple sclerosis.
Seeking out and engaging volunteers to the MS cause is at the very core of our business. Each year the Society organizes a series of community events that provide many opportunities for the enthusiastic volunteer. The Society offers three key fundraising activities: Bike MS, Walk MS and Challenge Walk MS. The Society also engages volunteers to help influence law-makers at the federal, state and municipal levels toward legislation important to people with MS. The Society is looking for passionate volunteers with expertise in areas such as: marketing communications, public relations, corporate and donor development, medical, legal, administrative and organizational expertise.

I have worked with this chapter for many years now. Since my nephew was diagnosed with MS, I swore I would help in anyway I can. They have several event types to choose from and within the event, several job / skill types also. The MS Walk and Bike ride fundraising events happen every year so they're fairly easy to fit into your schedule. The Service Day events help out an individual dealing with MS in their home, with minor repairs and cleaning. You start to meet people with MS and see how much your help is affecting their lives in a positive way. The experiences are always positive and leave you wanting to sign up for the next one. The Chapter itself is run by a great group of people that will work with you to always find the best volunteer match. There is no shortage of opportunities whether you're looking as an individual or a group.
