National Volunteer Week – Ross Chapman, MuckFest MS Boston Volunteer

Since my very first National Multiple Sclerosis Society event, I have had a longing to contribute to something larger than myself…to be a part of something that will help make a difference in the lives of other people. It has become my source of joy to participate as a volunteer for many of the Bike MS and Walk MS events for the National MS Society. The decision to be a part of the MuckFest® MS seemed like a natural thing to do.

This decision proved to be an exhilarating time with friends and an excellent opportunity to meet new friends. As with every event I participate in, regardless of any repetition, each time offers something new and inspiring.

As a volunteer, the enthusiasm of participants and other volunteers charges and amazes me. It would seem that there is no mountain too big, no puddle too deep, and no obstacle too insurmountable to be impassable for the determined participant set to meet the demands of the MuckFest MS event.

When the time comes to pack up and head home, I take with me that charge and enthusiasm to make a difference until next time, when we will gather to do it all again.
