Special Olympics Area 13 Spring Games: Medical Volunteers Needed (April 21 - 28)

To All Medics: If you have not yet volunteered for Special Olympics Texas, this is your chance to join our team. You, as a medical volunteer, are so very important to the success of Special Olympics because without medical personnel present at every event, the games are not allowed to take place at all. Your skill and expertise are truly needed.

This is an excellent chance to get some hands-on experience working with individuals with intellectual disabilities and learning about their special needs. You will have the opportunity to meet our athletes, have lots of fun and see with your own eyes the impact a few hours of your time can make to the lives of our athletes.

If you are able to volunteer for any of these event, please contact the SOTX Area 13 Medical Coordinator, Al Blunt at 512-633-6589 or acblunt@austin.rr.com.
