Georgia Special Olympics - May 29 ... Last Call for Volunteers

What: Olympics State Horse Show

When: Saturday, May 29, 11:45 am – 2:15 pm

Where: Wills Park Equestrian Center, 11915 Wills Road Alpharetta, Georgia 30009

Because of COVID guidelines, there have been very few in-person activities for Special Olympic athletes since March 2020. Therefore, the State Horse Show is a most welcome event. As an Official Sponsor of this event, the Rotary Club of Dunwoody has access to 15 volunteer spots. We are partnering with the Atlanta Rotaract Club on this volunteer opportunity. There are very few spaces left (maybe one or two - THANK YOU!) but still let Kathy Brandt know if you'd like to join us - we wouldn't mind having a back-up or two.

Why is this event so important:

  • Through participation in athletics, Special Olympic athletes learn life skills that transfer to home, community, school, workplace.
  • While Special Olympics athletes work hard to achieve their goals, thousands of volunteers partner with athletes helping them achieve success.
  • Dunwoody Rotarians have enthusiastically supported Special Olympics athletes through financial donations and volunteer service for more than 12 years.

Volunteer registration is open now. Please register by April 20 by sending name, email and cell phone to Kathy Brandt at The event will be totally staged as an outdoor event with CDC COVID guidelines enforced for the event. In preparation for the event all participants, including volunteers, will be sent a link to a training session and two COVID waivers to be signed and returned to Kathy Brandt.

For questions, contact Kathy Brandt at 404-797-0705

Please join the fun and fellowship while doing good for the athletes and their families. Help us make this a joyful day for all!
