Become a Volunteer
Volunteering for the MG Walk is a wonderful way to come together and support the mission of Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America. We have a variety of jobs to accommodate your skills and interests. We also have opportunities for groups, such as school or church groups, to volunteer at MG Walk. As a volunteer, you can make an impact and be MG STRONG.
 
Volunteer shifts typically last 3-6 hours and there will be a COVID-19 protocol in place that we will ask all volunteers to follow.
