We are at the moment looking for volunteers to Special Olympics Sweden Invitational Games 2020 (pre games). The Games, that will be held in Åre and Östersund February 1-4, is made possible by the help of volunteers.
The interest to help out is big. When we asked our followers on Facebook why they would like to volunteer, we received a great response.
Listed below is a selection of answers.
