I’m a Program Assistant with the Edmonton Special Olympics Bowling program where I help athletes with cognitive impairments improve their bowling capabilities. I am also an Assistant Coach with the Edmonton Sled Hockey Club. Our team practices once a week, and I help to run drills and support the athletes in practices and games. I volunteer because I have benefitted from other people’s volunteer efforts, and I want to continue the cycle and give back so that others receive those same benefits. Volunteering has made my life better because it makes me genuinely happy.
