Relive the Excitement and Celebrate the 2010 Olympic Volunteers with Volunteer BCFebruary, 7, 2011, Vancouver: Does February make you yearn for those friendly blue-jacketed volunteers who were the true heroes of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games?
February 12, 2011 marks the 1 year anniversary of the 2010 Olympic Games. Re-live the 2010 Olympic Games and "Wear Your Blue Jackets to Celebrate our Olympic Volunteers!"
Volunteer BC is inviting everyone who volunteered for the 2010 Olympics to get their blue jackets out (or any other Olympic volunteer uniform) and wear them with pride, from February 12 to February 28, 2011.
"With more than 25,000 volunteers supporting the Games, the volunteer spirit was legendary in 2010. We want to showcase the true heroes of the Olympics," said Kelina Kwan, President, Volunteer BC.
Submit a photo of you in your Olympic volunteer uniform (either from 2010 or 2011) to and share your volunteer experience. Volunteer BC will select photos to post on their Celebrate the 2010 Olympic Volunteers blog at: celebrate2010.tumblr.com.
Share your experience and enthusiasm around volunteering at the 2010 Olympic Games and continue to build the legacy of BC's volunteers.
