Everyone knows walking is great exercise.
It's also a fun way to raise money for worthy causes—and the Rhode Island Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society needs your help.
They are anticipating a great response for their Walk MS on April 6, in Narragansett and Providence, and May 3, in Bristol, and volunteers are needed at all three sites.
"Volunteers are essential to making the event a success and people are needed for activities such as registration and t-shirt distribution ...[and to] staff the rest stops along the walk routes," organizers said in a release.
Here are all the details you need:
To volunteer go to www.walkmsrhodeisland.org and click on Volunteer in the left column.
Walkers are always needed and there are many walk options:
- On May 3 in Bristol, walkers will enjoy a 6.2-mile course;
- On April 6 in Providence, walkers will follow a 3-mile course;
- On April 6 in Narragansett, walkers can choose from 6.2-mile or 3-mile walks.
"In all locations, registration opens at 8:30 a.m., with a mass walk start at 10 a.m. Walkers are encouraged to register early and fundraise to help Rhode Islanders with MS and raise money to fund research to find a cure!
