Applications are being accepted for the city’s ambassador program that promotes health and wellness in Kamloops.
Volunteers will be involved in a variety of activities, including hosting facility tours at the Tournament Capital Centre, hosting museum tours, volunteering at expos and strategic health-alliance programming on the indoor track.
“I have to say that helping out at the Bike to Work Week celebration station at the Kamloops Law Courts was a blast,” said Murray Dennis, one of the ambassadors who began with the program when it was introduced this year.
“It was great seeing the number of cyclists of all ages riding their bikes to work, no matter the weather.
“It almost made me want to unretire just so I could join in.”
Volunteers receive training and a three-month track and pool pass to the Tournament Capital Centre for their volunteer time.
People can fill out an application form online at kamloops.ca/volunteer, clicking the Tournament Capital Ambassador tab on the left, or by calling Alex de Chantal at 250-828-3828.
