Volunteering

Get involved today- we've got plenty of volunteer opportunities for those looking to be a part of the MS Melbourne Cycle team!
 

Without our amazing team of positive and energetic volunteers, we would not be able to operate the MS Melbourne Cycle and raise valuable funds for people affected by multiple sclerosis. 

We’d love for you to join the amazing team of more than 250 volunteers who get involved every year to support this great cause. Volunteering at the MS Melbourne Cycle will be a day you will not forget! If you're ready to take the plunge and be part of the amazing Volunteer Team:

VOLUNTEER HERE- and get involved today!
