National Volunteer Week

Celebrating SOBC's life-changing volunteers who make every moment matter and create inclusive communities!
We love SOBC volunteers!

Celebrating SOBC’s life-changing volunteers who make every moment matter!

The theme for National Volunteer Week 2024 is Every Moment Matters. It highlights the importance of every volunteer and each contribution they make – at a moment when we need support more than ever.

Special Olympics BC’s dedicated volunteers pour their hearts into everything they do. From organizing year-round programs and events to coaching athletes on the playing fields, SOBC volunteers are vital to the inclusivity, strength, and togetherness of our movement. They create much-needed spaces and opportunities for athletes with intellectual disabilities to find friendship, purpose, and community.

We are eternally grateful to all the volunteers who devote their time and energy to Special Olympics BC and make every moment matter!

During National Volunteer Week 2024 from April 14 to 20, we come together to recognize and celebrate the importance of each and every volunteer’s impact from coast to coast. Now more than ever, Every Moment Matters!
