Volunteers are an essential part of our fundraising events. Every year our volunteer team contribute time, effort and passion to ensure the ongoing support of those living with MS. We love to see old faces and new and we would love you to join us at the MS Melbourne Cycle + Half Marathon on Sunday 22 March 2020.
Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills, meet new people and give back to the community. Check out our available volunteer positions below, there’s a role to suit everyone!
*** Transportation considerations: the event takes place on a Sunday and most volunteers start at 5am. Please note public transport does not run at this time on a Sunday.
We aren’t the only ones thankful for the fantastic support and time given by volunteers. Check out the thank you video below from last year’s incredible event and see how important your contribution is.
Why volunteer with MS?
Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills and support the services provided to ensure people living with multiple sclerosis don’t have to face it alone. We have a wonderful group of MS Event Volunteers who come back each year and really enjoy each event!
What do volunteers receive?
All volunteers will receive a volunteer t-shirt, cap and lunch on event day, as well as a Certificate of Appreciation post event!
Can I get a referral from volunteering?
Volunteering looks great on your resume! Please contact us after you have completed your volunteer shift and we would be happy to send you a letter to confirm your volunteer attendance including roles and skills used.
What training is provided?
We provide all our volunteers with the instructions and details required to successfully complete your role and have a great day at our event! In person briefings are held two weeks before the event, and online briefings will be provided for those that can’t attend.
All volunteers will be further briefed on arrival at their shift and will have full support from a Team Leader or Volunteer Manager.
