We Couldn’t Do It Without You
Thank you for your interest in connecting with others as a volunteer at Walk MS.
The success of Walk MS is directly related to the wonderful volunteers who help
make the event a great experience. We welcome volunteers with a wide range of
skills, talents, abilities and interests. Families, corporate groups, and individuals
are welcome to participate.
Your donation of time is greatly appreciated and needed to create successful events. From pre-event planning to day-of implementation, it takes hundreds of volunteers to make Walk MS successful.
The only requirement we have of you is a sincere desire to help us end MS forever. Volunteer at one of our 4 fall walk locations, or as many as you'd like!

Below are examples of some of the available volunteer positions.
Join us in the morning to set up and prepare the site for the day’s events. Jobs may involve unloading and distributing supplies, setting up tables and chairs, and hanging banners and signage. Set-up may be different at each site and may involve a variety of tasks, but your help is critical in ensuring that everything is ready to go before the walkers arrive! (lifting involved)
Registration volunteers greet and check-in walkers, collect pledge envelopes, distribute t-shirts and provide general event information to walkers checking in. Registration volunteers will be trained on the specific process at mandatory training sessions the morning of the event.
Greeters will welcome walkers and direct them to the appropriate areas at the walk site, ensure registration lines are moving quickly and that walkers have all necessary materials complete before they get to the front of the line, and answer questions as needed.
Set up rest stop supplies and re-stock supplies as needed. You will create a fun atmosphere for all by cheering and providing food and beverages for participants as they take a short rest.
Got a special talent? Share your skills with Walk MS participants to make it a memorable experience for all. (Massage therapists, comedians, musicians, face-painters, etc.)
Say cheese! You will take team photos, start and finish line photos, and route and celebration photos.
Ensure that all walkers have a safe and enjoyable experience by providing medical support as needed.
Finish Line Celebration:
Let's party! This is the time for celebration! Finish Line volunteers will cheer walkers across the finish line and celebrate with walkers as they return!
Tear down volunteers are all-stars! You will help clean up the site, pack supplies and tents, and remove banners and signage. (lifting involved)
When you register online, you will receive the same fundraising tools our walkers enjoy through the Participant Center. And, when you fundraise as a volunteer, you are eligible for the same great prizes available to walkers!
