Volunteer Guide

Thank you MS Bike Volunteer

for Joining the Movement!

Your commitment to the 2008 Zimmerman MS Bike Ride

Presented by Wachovia is greatly appreciated by our cyclists

and the thousands of South Floridians living with multiple

sclerosis. MS stops people from moving, volunteers like you

exist to make sure it doesn’t.

Please adhere to the information in this brochure. If you

have elected to perform a specific task, please be sure to

inform the representative at the Volunteer Check-In Booths.

Please remember, this is a large event with various tasks and

requirements. We are asking our volunteers to be as flexible

as possible. Let us know your limitations as it will help us to

assign your task.

All Day-Of issues and concerns can be addressed at the

Volunteer Check-In and Information Booths. For further

assistance, you can also call the National MS Society office

at 1 800 FIGHT MS (800-344-4867); 954-731-4224;

305-599-0299 or e-mail: ms150biketour@fls.nmss.org
