This week marks National Volunteer Week, and we at the Transverse Myelitis Association are excited to celebrate! Daily, we are humbled by the support and dedication shown by our volunteers. Only through their efforts can the TMA do the work needed to be done to advocate for people diagnosed with rare neuroimmune disorders.
Our volunteers span across state and national lines: from California to Massachusetts, from England to India. They work tirelessly to hold support group meetings and offer a helping hand to those in their communities who need support. Our volunteers also organize Walk-Run-N-Rolls and other fundraising and awareness events, so that the TMA can grow and spread our mission of education, research, and advocacy. We also have volunteers who have shared their stories with our community so that no one feels alone in their diagnosis. Our volunteers help us spread our message both through social media and word of mouth. Volunteers give their time and energy to ensuring a better future for individuals and their families who are affected by these disorders. We are so incredibly grateful to them for all that they do!
If you are interested in becoming a part of the amazing team of TMA volunteers, there are many ways you can help. It may be as simple as writing a post for our Blog or sharing your story as a Hope Ambassador. It may be signing up for a community role as a Support Group leader, or a fundraising role as a Walk-Run-N-Roll organizer. Maybe you have your own ideas about how you would like to volunteer for the TMA, and we would love to hear them. We encourage you to get involved in spreading the mission of the TMA!
