Senior games seeks volunteers

By Staff | Nov 19, 2009

Volunteers are still needed for the 18th annual Florida Senior Games State Championships, which take place throughout Lee County and Cape Coral next month.

At least 40 more volunteers are needed to join the hundreds that will help starting Dec. 2, when event preparations begin for the nine-day event that kicks off Dec. 5. Events will happen at sites managed by Lee County Parks & Recreation and the City of Cape Coral Parks & Recreation.

More than 2,000 athletes will compete, and volunteers can apply to work any of the 24 sports offered. Volunteers do not need extensive sports backgrounds to help.

A volunteer application can be found at www.leeparks.org/volunteers

Or prospective volunteers, age 14 and over, can contact Lee County Parks & Recreation Volunteer Services Coordinator Kathy Cahill at (239) 432-2159. For their efforts during the Games, volunteers will be fed and receive a 2009 Florida Senior Games State Championships volunteer T-shirt.
