About this opportunity

The MS Walk & Fun Run is a very important fundraising event for MS, and simply could not operate without the support of an amazing team of positive and energetic volunteers. This is a fun family day out so why not bring along a team to volunteer with!?
Benefits of volunteering at this event include:
- Great way to meet new people
- You will have a fun day out with family and friends, so why not ask if they
want to volunteer with you!?
- It’s an opportunity to give back to your local community
- Volunteering is a good asset to your resume and future employers. We
provide you with a certificate of appreciation as a record.
- You will help to make a real difference to people living with multiple sclerosis.

All volunteers will be provided with refreshments, an MS volunteer t-shirt, hat, sunscreen, extensive written event and volunteer information as well as the support of MS Staff and Volunteer Team Leaders on event day.
