Volunteers make Walk MS possible

Walk MS Volunteers

Walk MS Volunteers

Each year, thousands of people across the country join the Walk MS volunteer team. From serving on planning committees and calling past participants to providing safety and support for walkers at the event, volunteers make Walk MS happen, and are the foundation of why Walk MS is the inspiring event it is.

Who can volunteer?

Families, corporate groups, and individuals are encouraged and welcome to volunteer. There are many opportunities to volunteer – we guarantee we can find a place for you! 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. (Some volunteer positions require a criminal and/or DMV background check, and some may involve driving or heavy lifting.)

When you volunteer, you become part of the MS movement—a collective of passionate individuals, moving together to create a world free of MS. Together we provide support, have fun, and make a difference in the lives of people living with MS.

Volunteer AND raise funds – the best of both worlds!

Did you know that volunteers can raise money too? Walk MS volunteers have access to a variety of great fundraising tools. When you register online, you have access to a Participant Center where you can set a fundraising goal, update your personal webpage to share your story with others, email supporters, track your progress and qualify for great fundraising prizes!
