2011 Special Olympics World Summer Games Volunteers
Along with Team Ireland, over 200 volunteers will travel to Athens to volunteer at the 2011 Special Olympics World Summer Games. The majority of these volunteers will work directly with the Athens Games Organising Committee. (Special Olympics Ireland is the only Special Olympics programme which has been given this privilege)
Each volunteer travelling has to raise €3,250 for the trip. The funds raised by these volunteers will help offset the costs associated with sending Team Ireland to Greece and cover their own travel costs. Fundraising efforts have been outstanding in all corners of Ireland. Activities have ranged from ‘Coast to Coast’ walks of Ireland & Santa’s Grottos, to Fashion Shows and Golf Tournaments.
Many volunteers have created their own Special Olympics Fundraising Pages - search for "Athens" on this page and see some of the events.
