Final push for volunteers

With less than a week to go until the Langley 2014 B.C. Seniors Games , the push is on to secure a few more volunteers.

The goal is 1,500 volunteers.

Volunteers can commit as little as a half a day to working the full week.

"From directing participants along race-routes to helping at the awards podium, there is something for everybody and all age groups," said Games' president Milt Kruger.

The organizers are also challenging local groups to support the Games with employee volunteers.

"The Games are a perfect way for companies to give back to the community through team participation," Kruger said.

"Several organizations are already participating, but there is a need for more."

Two of the main areas more help is needed in are medical services and transportation.

To register as a volunteer, either go to the Games office (101 20560 Fraser Hwy.) between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday to Friday), phone 604-533-8065 or email volunteer@bcsg2014.com.
