Fellow CAMWESTies,
                               some of you may choose to ride this event, but if you have some spare time, I know the Team at MS Australia would appreciate any help they can get.

Hi Sandra,
  
The MS Events Team is preparing the 30th Anniversary for the MS Sydney to the Gong Ride to be held on Sunday 6 November 2011. As a valued member of our volunteer family, we hope that you want to join in on the fun this year. 
 
Every year it is volunteers like you that make our events a success and our participants regularly tell us how wonderful you are with your encouragement, enthusiasm and smiling faces. Without you our events would not be possible, so please save the date and Register Now to volunteer. 

Many Thanks,
Angela Bekesi






 









  Why We Need You



 
 


Thanks to your volunteering efforts, MS Australia is able to host successful fundraising events that enable us to offer improved services and assistance to people with MS, their families and carers, while we continue to search for a cure.
 
Last year the Gong Ride smashed our fundraising goal of $4 million making the event the largest fundraising event for MS Australia. We are setting our sights even higher this year with a goal of $4.5 million and we need your help to make this event happen so please save the date and register to volunteer to help us smash the new target…
 
At present, more than 20,000 Australians have MS and it is the fastest growing neurological disease amongst young people. The average age of diagnosis is 30. These are alarming facts that indicate how important your support is and how vital it is to continue the fight in to this disease.
