Description:

The Special Olympics National Summer Games are being held in Antigonish, NS from July 31 – August 4, 2018 and we will be hosting a FUNFitness Screen at the event from Wednesday August 1, 2018 – Friday, August 3, 2018.

The FUNFitness screen is a Physiotherapy screen consisting of standardized tests of ROM, strength, balance and CV endurance. This is to provide these athletes, who may not get full access to the health system, an opportunity to be screened and given education on ways to decrease future injury risk.

I am looking for approximately 12 volunteers to help out over the course the three days (more is always fine also). The screen will be running from 9am – 5pm. (with a break for lunch). I am putting out an initial call for volunteers for those that may be able, and willing, to help out on a full day (or days) of the screen. Training will be provided prior to each shift as required. Transportation to the event will be reimbursed, meals will be provided and accommodation of those who would like to help out for multiple days will also be provided.

Those who are interested or have any questions can contact me at jhmarsha@dal.ca

Physiotherapists can be found all across Nova Scotia.
