People from across the UAE are encouraged to be part of history by signing up to be a volunteer at Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019.
A special volunteer registration event will be held at Yas Mall in Abu Dhabi on October 5th and 6th to encourage residents to participate in the world’s biggest sports and humanitarian event, taking place 14 – 21 March next year. The Local Organizing Committee for the World Games is recruiting 20,000 volunteers to help host the event.
A celebration of the UAE’s goal of integrating people of determination into everyday society, Yas Mall will host performances by musicians with and without intellectual disabilities while the public will also be invited to take part in special unified ZUMBA sessions.
A specially designed interactive game will help potential volunteers choose their preferred role, while a question and answer session will introduce the public to the Special Olympics UAE athletes representing the nation at the World Games and raise awareness of just how important this historic event will be.
Volunteers from all walks of life are encouraged to sign up, including people of determination, people with a positive attitude and a willingness to help and those with specialized skills.
