Thank You To Our Sponsors

November 24, 2024

The 2024 Para Biathlon World Championships and Nordic World Cup Finals, set to take place from March 5 – 17, 2024, at the Caledonia Nordic Ski Centre, are calling upon the community of Prince George for volunteer support. The Local Organizing Committee emphasizes the need for volunteers across various roles, including Course, Ceremonies, Biathlon event support, Security, Transportation, Venue, and Hosting.

Kevin Pettersen, Chairperson of the Local Organizing Committee, highlights the significance of this call to action: “Volunteers are the backbone of our event. Their dedication and enthusiasm bring the championships to life. This is an incredible opportunity to be part of a world-class event and to showcase the vibrant community spirit of Prince George on an international stage.”

Vonda Hofferd, Volunteer Coordinator, speaks to the value of volunteering: “Our volunteers don’t just give their time; they become part of a community that creates unforgettable experiences. Every role, from course preparation to helping in ceremonies, is critical in making the event a welcoming and inclusive experience for our athletes and guests.”

Volunteering at these events offers a unique chance to gain new skills, connect with others, and experience the excitement of an international sporting event firsthand. The Local Organizing Committee encourages individuals of all backgrounds to participate and contribute to the success of these prestigious championships.

Reflecting on the 2019 World Para Nordic Ski Championships, volunteer Heather Sanford shared her experience: “Volunteering in 2019 was an experience I’ll always cherish. Being so close to the action and witnessing the determination of the athletes was inspiring. It was more than just volunteering; it was about being part of something bigger, a celebration of human spirit and resilience. I encourage everyone to get involved in 2024 – it’s an opportunity you won’t want to miss.”
