We couldn't do it without you

Thank you for your interest in connecting with others as a volunteer at Bike MS. The success of Bike 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 thousands of volunteers to make Bike MS successful.

The only requirement we have of you is a sincere desire to help us end MS forever.
