Volunteers Needed at the 2012 Special Olympics Summer Games 6/9 & 6/10

Stanbridge College REACH is continuing its support of the Special Olympics Southern California by gathering volunteers for the 2012 Summer Games June 9th and 10th.

In 2011, over 1,100 athletes competed in the Summer Games in six different competitions including athletics (track and field), aquatics, basketball, bocce, golf, and gymnastics. Hearing the roar of the crowd, receiving high fives and knowing they have achieved a great accomplishment means everything to these athletes. Volunteer today and help provide much needed support to a very deserving group of people.

Event Details:

Date: Saturday & Sunday, June 9 – 10, 2012
Time: Full day or half day shifts available morning or afternoon. Times TBD upon registration.
Location: Cal State University, Long Beach and Recreation Park: 1250 N Bellflower Blvd, Long Beach, CA 90815

Registration: Click here or email vsauer@stanbridge.edu for information on how to register.

Volunteers are needed to help in a variety of shifts including fans-in-the-stands, scorekeepers, athlete staging, athlete awards, check-in, delegation escort, meal services and more.

The 2012 Summer Games is free to the public, so please encourage your family and friends to participate either as volunteers or as audience members.

Winning a medal is not the only thing that will make these athletes feel accomplished. The Special Olympics helps them make friends, feel accepted and overcome obstacles. Join us in supporting this inspirational event and volunteer today.
