This summer 300 athletes with disabilities supported by 300 coaches, officials, classifiers and assistants will be competing in Powell River.
The Powell River BC Disability Games is looking for volunteers to make the 2007 edition of the Games the best ever. Over 300 Volunteers have already registered but 200+ are still needed. We need people for accommodations, ceremonies, food service, fundraising, medical services, promotions, protocol, registration, security, sports, and transportation.
Look for Jo-Ann Diggon and the VW Westfalia (the “Volunteer Wagon”) with the wonderful artwork! It’s hitting the streets until early July. Stay tuned to Jump and Magic Radio to find it! You can also drop by the Volunteer Centre’s new location at 4482 Marine Avenue, or visit www.powellriver2007.com.
The Volunteer Wagon will be set up 12–4 during Local Loco’s Folk Feast on June 9th, and the Rick Hanson’s Wheels in Motion event at the recreation Complex on Sunday. (see story on page 3)
