IRONMAN Canada - Volunteers Needed

Posted by Whistler Youth Soccer Club on Mar 09 2013 at 09:32AM PST in 2012-2013 Season

We need YOUR help!

Ironman Whistler is on Sunday August 25, 2013, so please come out and be a part of this event!

We need to know NOW if you can commit to being available on Sunday 25TH August.

WYSC relies on grant monies each year and we would like to apply for 2 x $1000 grants that the IRONMAN Foundation is offering.

To receive the grant WYSC needs to provide approx 40 volunteers to help run and host 2 Aid Stations along the route of the race.

It is really easy!

All WYSC needs to provide are:
• 2 Captains – who are responsible for recruiting, scheduling, training and supervising the volunteers in their function. (You and a friend could share this responsibility!)

• Approx 10 adults and 10 children at each station

You will be responsible for keeping the aid station going and supporting the athletes as they come through and of course, cheering them on!

Email: to offer your help NOW.
We need to know if we are able to provide enough volunteers for this great event and are therefore eligible to apply for 2 x $1000 grants.

Grant application deadline is FRIDAY MARCH 15TH, so please let me know asap if you are able to assist. This is an important fundraising event for us.
