Description: Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Challenge 2019 scheduled for May 18! This event simply would not exist if it weren't for our fabulous volunteers who make the meet a great success year after year.

What are the Challenge Games? Challenge is a daylong track and field competition for physically challenged athletes. It provides an opportunity for athletes to compete against others with similar levels of ability. Each year over 60 physically challenged athletes from Kansas and the surrounding Midwest participate in this event. Types of disabilities represented at the meet include spinal cord injury, amputations, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and others.

How can I help? Volunteers are needed for various activities such as: track timers, field event officials, etc. No experience is needed! We split up our volunteer corps into morning and afternoon workers so that you are not obligated to help the entire day. This is a chance to have a great day in the sun and support some very competitive athletes. Past volunteers will tell you how enjoyable the event is, and can vouch for the seriousness of the athletes. Simply email with the information listed below.

What's in it for me? A cool T-shirt, lunch, pizza party, and a great time.

When will I find out what event I will be helping with? Approximately one week before Challenge, you will be sent information (either by fax, email, or mail) for your particular event. If you have not received your information by approximately May 10th, please contact us.
