Volunteer and make a difference!
Volunteering means taking your time to give to a cause you believe in. It means applying your skills towards helping those who need it the most. Volunteering means making a significant difference in the achievement of our mission. Young and less young, if the cause is dear to you, join our team and help us make the Walks to End ALS a great success!
Volunteering for the walk means having access to:
- The volunteer t-shirt;
- A snack;
- Free parking (depending on the location of the walk);
- The possibility of taking part in the walk (depending on the position held).
Whether it’s providing participants with snacks or practicing your photography skills, we have something for you!
