Volunteers Welcome!

Volunteers are needed for various 

activities such as track timers, field 

event officials, etc. No experience is 

needed! This is a chance to have a 

great day in the sun and support some very competitive athletes.

What are the Challenge Games?

Challenge is a daylong track, field, and boccia competition for persons with physical disability or visual impairment. 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. Past volunteers will tell you how enjoyable the event is, and can vouch for the seriousness of the athletes.

We have the following volunteer needs:

1 Saturday Morning Session: runs from 7:45 AM to approximately 12 noon. Includes timing for track events or assisting with indoor boccia competition. 

2 Saturday Afternoon Session: runs 11:45 AM to approximately 4:30 PM. Includes officiating field events. (More volunteers are needed for this session than any other) 

3 Saturday Sherpa Duty: Help with set up/take down/moving things/etc. Would be a great job for a couple of strong young men with a pickup. 

4 Friday evening Sherpa duty and Field set up: This is on Friday evening before the event. Help set up the concession stand, set up the field events, and get things prepped for Saturday. We generally start this around 5 pm. Afterwards, we go out for burgers. 

Please do not sign up to volunteer unless you are 100% committed to attend—the athletes are counting on you!
