Volunteers Needed for Special Olympics Minnesota’s Fall Games

Special Olympics Minnesota (SOMN) needs you! More than 1,600 SOMN athletes with and without intellectual disabilities from across the state are set to compete at the 2015 Fall Games on August 14-16. Over 400 volunteers are needed for a smooth event. Volunteer opportunities include assisting with scorekeeping, timing, officiating, escorting, staging of athletes, score runners, awards assistants and presenters for bocce, softball, golf and equestrian. Volunteers must be at least 15 years of age. All volunteers will receive a volunteer T-shirt. Volunteers not only directly impact athlete lives but they also walk away with memories that last a lifetime.
Fall Games will take place at Bielenberg Sports Center, Oak Marsh Golf Course and Northwest Saddle Club. Softball and bocce ball will be held at Bielenberg Sports Center, golf will be at Oak Marsh Golf Course and equestrian will take place at Northwest Saddle Club. The competitions begin on Friday, August 14, and will conclude on Sunday, August 16.
