After a 2-year hiatus MS Walk Boston is back. Throughout the year, the National MS Society organizes walks to raise funds for multiple sclerosis research and patient advocacy. The Boston walk has long relied on hams to help ensure everyone’s safety.
This year’s MS Walk Boston is on Sunday, April 3rd. It starts and ends at Boston University’s Nickerson Field in Boston, and runs along Commonwealth Ave and Boston University. Volunteers will check in at 8:00 AM, and stay until the early afternoon.

From Bruce Blain, K1BG:
Please let your membership know that the Boston Marathon is in need of an additional 80 – 100 volunteers to provide communications for the 2022 Boston Marathon. It’s a great opportunity to provide a public service, meet many fellow hams, and just have fun enjoying amateur radio during this event. It’s a great way for new hams and old hams alike to show what amateur radio is all about.
Make your membership aware! By email, webpage, local 2 meter/440 net, social media, newsletter, etc. Please get the word out.
