MS Bike is the largest fundraising cycling series in North America. Cyclists of all ages and fitness levels across Canada come together each year to end Canada's disease: multiple sclerosis. With hundreds of participants, volunteers are needed to help with every aspect of the entire event. This is a great opportunity to make an impact in your community using your talent and time.


There are various areas on site (Site set up/wrap up, parking control, participant check in area, checkpoint attendants, food & beverage area, start/finish line cheering, volunteer check-in, and many others) where volunteer help is needed to ensure that this event runs smoothly and participants have a great experience while they are cycling to raise critical funds to support those effected by MS.
