The success of Challenge Walk MS depends on volunteers like you! Each volunteer's contribution, large or small, is critical to the success of our events. Volunteers provide key support to Challenge Walk all year, from serving on planning committees, calling past participants to providing safety for our walkers and overall support at the event. We welcome volunteers with a wide range of talents and skills. There is only one requirement: a desire to end MS now!
When you join the Challenge Walk Volunteer Team, you become a part of Challenge Walk. Together we will provide support, raise money, have fun, and make a difference in the lives of people living with MS.
Groups and individuals of all ages and abilities are invited to volunteer. We are always looking for youth clubs, corporate, and service-oriented community groups to lend a hand before, during, and after our events.
Volunteer your time by helping at Challenge Walk MS in a variety of roles throughout the weekend. Registration is free for volunteers.
Like volunteers, Crew members handle multiple jobs throughout the weekend. Crew members pay the registration fee but aren't required to fundraise.
Super Crew members are those who volunteer for the weekend but also pay the registration fee and raise the fundraising minimum. In exchange, they participate in all celebrations and activities.
Super Crew members are dedicated volunteers who pay the registration fee, raise the fundraising minimum and receive all the same benefits as walkers. Super Crew members assist with a variety of volunteer responsibilities throughout the Challenge Walk weekend.
Crew members are not required to pay the registration fee, but they are encouraged to fundraise. Overnight accommodations and meals are not included for Crew Members.
This varies with your skills and interests. Once you fill out the volunteer registration form, we will set up a time to meet with you to identify the best fit.
You will receive a Challenge Guide and Crew Information Manual with detailed job descriptions for each Crew position.
Regular Crew members are not required to raise the minimum pledge, but are encouraged to fundraise.
