We Couldn't Do It Without You
The success of Bike MS depends on volunteers like you! Each volunteer's contribution, large or small, is critical to the success of the event. Volunteers provide key support to Bike MS all year, from serving on planning committees, calling past participants to providing safety for our riders and overall support at the event.
Volunteers are the helping hands that make the event possible! When you join the Bike MS Volunteer Team, you become a part of Bike MS. 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 sport teams, corporate and service-oriented community groups.
