Special Olympics PA Carbon County is hosting their annual Track & Field Competition Saturday, May 18, at the Jim Thorpe Area High School Stadium.

They are in need of a lot of volunteers to help run this event successfully. Some of the areas they need volunteers for are registration, uniform distribution, security, officials table, runners for scores, set-up/clean-up, measurers, timers, athlete escorts, high-fivers, equipment retrievers and so on.

Volunteers should arrive about 8:30 a.m; so as to allow enough time to prepare before the athletes arrive at 9:30 a.m.

Anyone who is available to volunteer should either call or email Sheri Anthony, SOPA volunteer coordinator, at (610) 737-0469, or sheria@ptd.net [1].
