Aloha Friends!
As the 2018 State Summer Games quickly approaches, over 1100 athletes and coaches across the State of Hawaii are busy training and will compete at the University of Hawaii, Manoa Campus on May 25-27, 2018. Events for the Summer Games include Softball, Swimming, Track & Field and Powerlifting.  Special Olympics Hawaii heavily relies on volunteers to staff our events and we need your help! Without your help and that of almost 2,800 volunteers, the Games would not be possible.
I’ve attached the volunteer schedule for the weekend so please let me know if you see something you’d like to do.  As always, positions are filled on a first-come first-serve basis, and positions will go fast, so sign up now!  All volunteers will receive a Special Olympics Hawaii volunteer shirt and are welcome to visit our Volunteer Hospitality Area (for drinks, snacks and lunch) at the Murakami Baseball Stadium.  
On behalf of the Staff and Athletes of Special Olympics Hawaii, thank you very much for your support!    
We hope to see you in May!
