National Volunteer Week

Celebrating SOBC's life-changing volunteers who weave us together and create inclusive communities!
We love SOBC volunteers!

The 2023 National Volunteer Week festivities celebrate how volunteering weaves us together, strengthening the fabric of our community by sharing our time, talent, and energy to support one another.

Special Olympics BC's dedicated and selfless volunteers empower athletes, make year-round programs possible, and open hearts and minds to the abilities of people with intellectual disabilities.

We are eternally grateful to all the volunteers who give so much to Special Olympics BC and make such a difference by weaving so many people together!

Through volunteering we experience our interconnectedness, making our lives more meaningful. Getting involved in various ways, we find friendship, develop trust, and link our relationships. Threading these connections, we come to belong as we contribute towards the same goals. During National Volunteer Week 2023, SOBC celebrates the collective impact of volunteers: Through your kindness, generosity, and commitment, you weave lives together!
