For the past eight years I persistently applied to be volunteer for the Winter Games. A lifetime winter sports enthusiast, serving as a volunteer for the Winter Games has been at the top of my bucket list.
I am proud to say I finally made the cut! I received an offer today to be an attendant for the Paralympics. My job will entail assisting the athletes and coaches at Whistler Creekside, the venue for Alpine skiing. I was selected by the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games out of more than 70,000 applicants.
I will be leaving on March 7 for training before the Games begin and returning on March 22. My host is a wonderful lady named Karin who lives in a historic home in West Vancouver.
I hope you enjoy following my journey through my blog. Go Team USA!
