There are two weeks left to sign up to volunteer to be a part of the 2015 Canada Winter Games.
And Williams Lake and area residents can be a part of what will be the largest multi-sport and cultural event to ever be hosted in Northern B.C. by registering by Dec. 31, 2014.
“We have had a tremendous response from the volunteer community and require a few more volunteers to ensure we host the best Canada Games this region possibly can,” said Christine Nicholls, manager of the volunteer workforce with the Games.
“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a part of the largest multi-sport and cultural event for youth in the nation — an opportunity that won’t return to the province of B.C. for more than two decades.”
There are opportunities for volunteers to lend their skills to the 2015 Games from Feb. 13 until March 1, 2015, in a variety of rules such as media services, spectator services, environment and fabrication.
“There is a role for everyone on team 2015,” Nicholls said. “More than 4,000 have already joined team 2015 and we are confident the community will push us over our volunteer requirement of 4,500.”
