The events are coming

FriendraisersThe Greater Delaware Valley Chapter hosts major fundraising events every year. This would not be possible without the help of thousands of volunteers who donate their time to make these events fun and successful for our participants.

Visit our new website volunteerforMS.org to see all the ways you can get involved at events throughout the year. It's never too early to sign up.

Why not start with volunteering at a Walk MS event in your community? Click here to see the list of the 18 Walk MS sites and register to volunteer at one in your area. Help is needed with checking in walkers, handing out food and drinks and cheering them across the finish line. Contact Kristin Marnie for more details.

Partnership opportunities

The chapter's events allow us to fund vital research and provide programs and services that improve the quality of life for people living with MS in local communities. We work hard to keep our event supply costs down to ensure the majority of the funds raised directly benefit the MS community.


The chapter would like to create partnerships with local businesses that can donate some of these supplies. Having these items donated could save the Chapter up to $13,500. Some of the items in need are orange balloons, paper towels, cups, helium tanks, etc. Click here to review the full list of needs. If you are interested in giving, please email Lauren Trager.
