The success of Walk MS is directly related to the wonderful volunteers who dedicate their time to the chapter. We welcome volunteers of all ages, abilities and talents to assist with a variety of volunteer opportunities. There is only one requirement – a desire to see a world free of MS!
All Walk MS volunteers receive:
Check-In Crew: Our check-in crew volunteers are the first faces our walkers see! Volunteers assist in event set-up, collect pledge envelopes, register walk-on participants, and hand out T-shirts as well as route maps.
Mission Maniacs: Maniacs bring the mission to Walk MS! Maniacs circulate through the crowd to welcome and direct event participants, thank people for participating, distribute Walk MS goodies to participants and cheer on participants.
Cheer Crew: Wanted: Volunteers with energy to spare! Our cheer crew volunteers are stationed at cheer zones along the route to encourage and cheer on our event participants, monitor the course and direct any participants during the walk.
Celebration Crew: Volunteers assist with various tasks at the Walk MS finish line, which includes the set-up and distribution of lunch (varies by site), distributing medals and event break down.
Entertainers: Got a special talent? Share your skills with Walk MS participants to make it a memorable experience for all! We’re looking for musicians, DJs, face painters, magicians, clowns, balloon artists, and more to donate their time and join the movement.
Press: Say cheese! We’re looking for photographers & videographers to capture the magic of Walk MS. Using your own equipment, you will take team photos, start and finish line photos, and route and celebration photos. A list of desired photos will be provided.
Did you know volunteers can join an existing team of Walk MS participants? Or that you can create your own volunteer team?
Volunteering is just more fun when you’re part of a team! Gather your co-workers, your friends, and family and create a volunteer team to enjoy the event together. Volunteer teams are also a great opportunity to get your school, club or organization involved together. And, don’t forget, as a team, you’re eligible for any of our amazing fundraising incentives available to our participants!
