Who we are:
Special Olympics is where athletes with intellectual disabilities celebrate and are celebrated for their accomplishments. It’s often the first time that our athletes have truly taken center stage and been recognized as individuals. And the focus is not limited to sports. In diverse areas like healthcare, leadership training, legislative self advocacy and employment, Special Olympics takes a leadership role.
Fallfest is fast approaching and we need more volunteers to help us run The Kids Court!
Even if you can only help us for an hour, any help would be greatly appreciated! This is one of our best fundraisers of the year. It helps us fund all of the special activities for our athletes!
Please visit www.westminsterfallfest.com to register as a volunteer.
Be sure to select SOCR as the organization you are volunteering for at the bottom of the registration.
After you register, please contact Donna at firstname.lastname@example.org with what days and times you can volunteer.
